Nutrient enrichment in grasslands provides extra plant growth, and the animals that eat these plants cannot keep up in most places. This increase in biomass not only reduces biodiversity in the landscape but also increases the risk of natural fires. This is shown by research from the Nutrient Network, a worldwide research network of which Prof Dr Harry Olde Venterink and Dr Judith Sitters of the Vrije Universiteit Brussel are members. The results were published last month in the leading journal Nature Communications.
