This chapter explores the controls over nutrient pools and fluxes across different California grassland types, beginning by discussing exotic-dominated annual grasslands, where most biogeochemical studies have occurred. Patterns in these annual grasslands are compared to those in native grasslands and oak-grassland matrices. Finally, the chapter examines the roles of organisms other than plants in influencing nutrient dynamics.
