The changes of nutrient limitation status for tree growth across a plantation chronosequence have great implications for plantation management. The underlying mechanisms for such a shift, however, have seldom been addressed. While plant nutrient use strategies would change in response to soil nutrient alteration, they may also create feedback on soil nutrient dynamics and thus plant nutrient limitation status.
