DescriptionRatios of nitrogen (N) isotopes in leaves could elucidate underlying patterns of N cycling across ecological gradients. To better understand global-scale patterns of N cycling, we compiled data on foliar N isotope ratios, foliar N concentrations, mycorrhizal type and climate for over 11 000 plants worldwide. Global-scale comparisons of other components of the N cycle are still required for better mechanistic understanding of the determinants of variation in foliar N isotope ratios and ultimately global patterns in N cycling.
