Research shows that fertilisation destabilises grassland ecosystems on a global scale

February 2014

Ground-breaking ecological research involving Trinity College Dublin’s newly appointed Professor of Zoology, Yvonne Buckley, has shown that fertilisation of natural grasslands has a destabilising effect on the way these critically important ecosystems function.  The research conducted by the Nutrient Network, also known as ‘NutNet’ has just been published in the journal Nature.  For more information on the research please visit Trinity College news and events.
