Abstract In a sacred grove climax forest (protected by the local Khasi tribe for religious reasons) at Cherrapunji in north-eastern India (mean annual rainfall, 10 372 mm), litter dynamics and related fine root dynamics were studied. Litterfall and its decomposition were very pronounced during the monsoon season, unlike in other rain forests in the region. High levels of nitrogen (2.13–3.58%) phosphorus (0.62–0.91%) and potassium (1.45–1.98%) in the leaf litter of four dominant tree species… Expand
