There is a positive correlation between leaf and root decomposition across species, both in a warm-temperate forest in Japan, as well as globally. Evaluating the effects of plant species traits on litter decomposition would increase our understanding of plant–soil feedbacks in forest ecosystems. Currently, an assessment of a possible coordination between leaf and root decomposition across different species is required. However, previous studies have generated conflicting results. We… CONTINUE READING
