Decay rates of woody debris were estimated and used to model the decay of various diameters of branches and stems in a beech stand in Central Germany. In addition, use of wood density, volume and mass loss to quantitatively describe the degree of decay was tested. The mass loss during decay could be described by a simple exponential function. Under the… CONTINUE READING
