Short summary
Our results highlight the importance of soil physicochemical properties (mainly SOC, C : N, and pH) rather than elevation (i.e., canopy cover and environmental factors, especially temperature) in determining base cation and micronutrient availabilities in soils and subsequently their concentrations in plant tissues.
