Abstract

The primary objective of this study is to examine the control that substrate quality and climate have on patterns of long-term decomposition and nitrogen accumulation in above- and below-ground fine litter. Of particular interest will be to examine the degree these two factors control the formation of stable organic matter and nitrogen after extensive decay. These data sets are part of : (LIDET) Harmon, M. 2005. LTER Intersite Fine Litter Decomposition Experiment (LIDET): Long-Term Ecological Research.Corvallis, OR: Forest Science Data Bank: TD023.
