Development of the oil sands has led to increasing atmospheric N deposition, with values as high as 17 kg N/ha/yr; regional background levels <2 kg N/ha/yr. To examine responses to N deposition, over five years, we experimentally applied N (as NH4-NO3) to a poor fen near Mariana Lake, Alberta, at rates of 0, 5, 10, 15, 20, and 25 kg N/ha/yr, plus controls (no water or N addition). Between June and August of each year,...
