Fig. 2: Global average phosphorus (P) losses due to soil erosion in kg ha−1 yr−1.

From: Global phosphorus shortage will be aggravated by soil erosion

Fig. 2

The chromatic scale represents the P losses estimates, while the gray color indicates the cropland areas that were excluded from the modeling due to data unavailability. Note that classes are not regularly scale ranked but are divided into six classes using the quantile classification method. Only plant available fractions were considered. For the more residual P fractions please refer to Table 1 or Figs. 3 and 4).
