Litter quality and decomposability of species from a Mediterranean succession depend on leaf traits but not on nitrogen supply.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIMS The rate of plant decomposition depends on both the decomposition environment and the functional traits of the individual species (e.g. leaf and litter quality), but their relative importance in determining interspecific differences in litter decomposition remains unclear. The aims of this study were to: (a) determine if species from… (More)
