The productivity of California grasslands is limited by nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, or water at various sites, and studies finding limitation by multiple resources are common. This chapter reviews this evidence, and explores resource limitation patterns and how they affect plant community productivity, functional group composition, and trophic interactions.

Keywords:   California, nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, sulfur, water, resource limitation, productivity, group composition, trophic interactions
