Impact of species diversity, stand age and environmental factors on leaf litter decomposition in subtropical forests in China

Abstract:

Background and aims Tree diversity is considered to influence decomposition either by changing environmental conditions or by non-additive litter mixture effects. Thus, we examined the influence of tree species richness, forest age and environmental factors on single-species decomposition, and tested the hypothesis that high litter species diversity induces predominantly positive non-additive mixture effects on decomposition processes. Methods Decomposition trials using litter bags were perf...
