CSPs: Soil Gravimetric Water Content (mineral soil)

Abstract:
In all four seasons (summer 2008, autumn 2008, spring 2009 and winter 2010) the gravimetric soil water content of the mineral soil in up to 6 soil layers was determined. Soil sampling was performed in parallel with nitrate and ammonium extractions.

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

Abstract:
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...
