Weaker land–climate feedbacks from nutrient uptake during photosynthesis-inactive periods

Weaker land–climate feedbacks from nutrient uptake during photosynthesis-inactive periods, Published online: 29 October 2018; doi:10.1038/s41558-018-0325-4

During periods of photosynthetic inactivity, roots compete for nutrients with microbes and abiotic processes. Most ESMs neglect this competition, leading to large positive biases in annual N leaching and N2O emissions estimates.
