Welcome to the homepage of the Soils Laboratory of the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. We study how soils influence the ecology of tropical rain forests. Our emphasis is on the phosphorus cycle, especially the importance of organic compounds in the nutrition of plants.
We also provide analytical services to the STRI community.
