Abstract Litter containers with dead leaves of Typha were submersed above and under a floating island, and were also suspended in air. Three litter containers were retrieved from each site after 7, 15, 30, 45, 75 and 150 days. Dry weight losses and decay coefficients were calculated. After 150 days of immersion, litter decomposition was 50% and 39% of the initial weight for samples incubated above and under the floating island, respectively. Samples suspended in air decomposed more slowly; at… CONTINUE READING
