P handbook available in English
The electronic handbook on the selection of methods for digestion and determination of total phosphorus in environmental samples is now available in English. The handbook was first published in German in 2018. It describes many of the laboratory methods used in P research and compares the data obtained with each one to demonstrate its specific utility. Important parameters are sample and standard precision, correctness, measuring range, and the determination limit, which are explained and illustrated by many examples. Additionally, P concentrations are provided for a wide range of habitats and for animal and plant tissues. The e-book combines the underlying theory with detailed step by step instruction, materials, simple calculations, examples, photographs, tips and tricks.
There are also new chapters in German. Further individual chapters are published sequentially as collection of pages, which are constantly updated on the intranet of the Leibniz ScienceCampus Phosphorus Research.
