In this study, leaf N and P resorption levels of invasive Ailanthus altissima (Mill.) Swingle
species were investigated during the development season. Resorption is the
mechanism by which nutrients are transported back to perennial tissues. This
mechanism is an important part of the nutrient cycling in trees and shrubs. Resorption
has been affected by nutrient concentration of habitat, plant species and using
strategies of nutrients. A. altissima
is both opportunistic and nutrient conservative strategy in terms of ecologically.
So, resorption should be evaluated together these factors. The study area was
selected as forested area in the Hendek district of Sakarya province where the disturbance
was effective. Similar areas in terms of vegetation and environmental
characteristics (soil, topography, etc.) were selected. Three individuals of A. altissima were identified from each
area and both leaf and soil samples were taken during the vegetation period.
According to the findings, the N resorption ability of the species was found to
be high and P resorption ability was close to the limit values. In addition, it
was found that different soil properties (nutrient content, pH and electrical
conductivity) did not adversely affect the amount of N resorption.
