   This study shows that in a base-poor forest of the northeastern USA the 'exchangeable Ca pool' of deeper mineral soils is significantly enriched in radiogenic 40Ca, due to the dissolution of K-rich silicate minerals. Using a simple isotope mass balance model our results indicate that the weathering of biotite may supply a sizeable fraction, up to 25%, of Ca into the 'exchangeable pool' of deeper mineral soils. We also found no evidence of radiogenic 40Ca in the samples of forest floor and the uppermost organic-rich soils, which in turn suggest that over the long-term development of the forest, the vegetation growth must relied primarily on the non-radiogenic Ca sources, such as (i) atmospheric deposition, (ii) organically-complexed Ca, and (iii) chemical weathering and/or fungal mediated dissolution of apatite. Hence, our Ca isotope data indicate that the base-poor forest is able to bypass the 'exchangeable pool' of deeper mineral soils, and still manages to meet its nutritional Ca req
