Nitrogen transfer between high- and low-quality leaves on a nutrient-poor Oxisol determined by N enrichment

Abstract

It has been proposed that the C/N ratio, or quality, of litter or mulch mixtures affects N release. Although total N release from these mixtures and the effects on soil N are relatively well understood, a mechanistic understanding of the interactions between litter species with respect to their N release is still lacking. This study examines decomposition… (More)
