    There was little information on sulfur (S) cycling in forests compared with that of other nutrients (especially N) until the past two decades. Interest in S nutrition and cycling in forests was heightened with the discovery of deficiencies in some unpolluted regions (Kelly and Lambert, 1972; Humphreys et al., 1975; Turner et al., 1977, 1980) and excesses associated with acidic deposition in other regions of the world (Mewies and Khanna, 1981; Shriner and Henderson, 1978; Johnson et al., 1982, 1986b). Several reviews have been written about S cycling in forests, and the interested reader should refer to those papers for a general treatise on the subject (Turner and Lambert, 1980; Johnson, 1984; Mitchell et al.. 1992a,b). It is our primary purpose to consider an important but often overlooked aspect of S cycling in forests-namely, the response to changing S inputs.
