Organic phosphorus dynamics in tropical agroecosystems.

This paper reviews recent advances on studies on the role of organic phosphorus in tropical agroecosystems, with emphasis on the effects of management on soil organic phosphorus dynamics. In an introduction to the analytical methods used to determine concentrations and forms of organic phosphorus, recent results from their application to soils under native vegetation or other control sites in the tropics are summarized. The different approaches used to analyse organic phosphorus dynamics in tropical soils are also described, and the different practices favouring its decline or accumulation in tropical agroecosystems are assessed.
