We measured nitrification and N minerali- Purpose Alpine meadow soils are large carbon (C) and nitro- zation rates when soils were incubated at different temperature −2 gen (N) pools correlated significantly with global C and N (15 or 25 °C) and N additions (control vs. 4 g m )to examine cycling. Soil N transformations, including nitrification and N their responses to restoration species, warming, and N. mineralization, are key processes controlling N availability.
