Because leaf litter occurs at the interface between the soil and atmosphere, the invertebrates inhabiting it represent important linkages between aboveand below-ground food webs. The responses of these organisms to forest disturbance brought about by invasive species should therefore have farreaching ecological effects. The purpose of this study was to explore how canopy gap formation (gap fraction 1–10%) and fallen ash trees (“logs”) resulting from extensive (>99%) ash tree mortality caused by… CONTINUE READING
