Mixing effects on litter decomposition rates in a

2016-1-1  Recent research in forests suggests that the identity of the litter species within the mixture affects the decomposition rate of mixed litter more than the diversity of the litter per se (Cuchietti et al., 2014, Wu et al., 2013). Mixing litter of different species may have an additive or non-additive effect on the decomposition rate.

Time and litter species composition affect litter

2013-3-29  Litter decomposition is a fundamental process of biogeochemical cycles. Mixing litter of different species can induce non-additive effect (NAE) on decomposition processes. A better understanding of the factors influencing the direction and magnitude of NAE is important for quantification of ecosystem carbon and nutrient cycling.

2019-3-1  Such nonadditive litter-mixing effects on decomposition processes often occur idiosyncratically because their direction and magnitude can change with incubation time (Marco et al., 2011, Wu et al., 2013, Cuchietti et al., 2014) and decomposition environment or context (Madritch and Cardinale, 2007, Jonsson and Wardle, 2008, Rosemond et al., 2010, Bretherton et al., 2011). It is therefore necessary in highly heterogeneous environments to consider how the environmental context affects litter ...
