Project objectives

Development of a database and electron maps containing information on chemical elementary composition of plants, storages and sizes of consumption of N, P, K and other elements in ecosystems of different climatic belts of the Earth.

The results expected

Development of a database according to the divisions: 1. Chemical composition of the plants of main vegetative communities of the world. 2. Nirogen and ash element storages in phytomass and plant residues of the main ecosystem types of the world. 3. The consumption of chemical elements by vegetation and their release decomposition of plant residues. 4. Main types of biological cycle in overground ecosystems. The information of clauses 2 and 3 will also be reflected at electron maps.
