Comments p.701 left column top paragraph:"The biomass of all living organisms consists of around 30 of the 92 naturally occurring elements (Fig. 1a and Supplementary Table S1) [refs 1,2]." p.703 right column bottom paragraph:"A significant proportion of the subsurface pools of many nutrients results from remineralization of organic matter produced in the surface layer (Fig. 2a and Supplementary Table S1). Consequently, the elemental composition of organic matter production (Fig. 1a), alongside any variability in remineralization rates between elements [refs 33, 41], can also influence subsurface nutrient stoichiometry [refs 4, 41, 42, 43, 44]."
