The emerging consensus posits that ultraviolet (UV) radiation accelerates litter decomposition in xeric environments mainly by preconditioning litter for subsequent microbial decomposition. However, how UV radiation affects the interactions among litter chemistry, microbes, and eventually litter mass during different decomposition stages is still poorly understood. Here, we conducted a 29-month in situ decomposition experiment with litter exposed to ambient and reduced UV in a semi-arid… CONTINUE READING
