Description :
Here the AA. report data from a reconnaissance survey of soil phosphorus fractions for contrasting soil types under lowland tropical forest on Barro Colorado Island, Republic of Panama. These soils have developed under uniform vegetation and climate, but on contrasting lithology and topography, so they are subject to distinct mineralogy and weathering regimes. By studying these soils, the AA. aimed to explore the extent to which soil phosphorus fractions and phosphorus availability vary with local-scale differences in lithology and topography.
