Table 1 Results (F value) of three-way ANOVAs with the main and interactive effects of nitrogen deposition (N), mowing (M), and functional group identity (G) on the concentrations (%) and stocks (g m−2) of crude protein, crude fat, and crude fiber in forage of a temperate meadow steppe

From: Mowing weakens the positive effects of nitrogen deposition on fundamental ecosystem service of grassland
