Epilithic mosses are early colonizers of the terrestrial biosphere, constitute a special ecosystem regulating rock-atmosphere interactions, and may be more restricted in their nitrogen (N) supply than other mosses. Terrestrial mosses can take up nitrate (NO3-), a major form of bioavailable N, from soil substrates. However, the importance of substrate NO3- relative to atmospheric NO3- remains unclear in moss NO3- utilization. This has prevented the understanding of moss NO3- dynamics and its responses to environmental...
