Effects of fire frequency on litter decomposition as mediated by changes to litter chemistry and soil environmental conditions

Abstract

Litter quality and soil environmental conditions are well-studied drivers influencing decomposition rates, but the role played by disturbance legacy, such as fire history, in mediating these drivers is not well understood. Fire history may impact decomposition directly, through changes in soil conditions that impact microbial function, or indirectly… (More)
