The contribution of leaf litter decomposition to total soil CO 2 efflux (F L /F) was evaluated in a beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) forest in eastern France. The Keeling-plot approach was applied to estimate the isotopic composition of respired soil CO 2 from soil covered with either control (À30.32%) or 13 C-depleted leaf litter (À49.96%). The d 13 C of respired soil CO 2 ranged from À25.50% to À22.60% and from À24.95% to À20.77%, respectively, with depleted or control litter above the soil. The F… CONTINUE READING
