A Global Database of Litterfall Mass and Litter Pool Carbon and Nutrients
Entry ID: GLOBAL_LITTER_CARBON_NUTRIENTS_1244_1


Summary
Abstract: Measurement data of aboveground litterfall and littermass and litter carbon, nitrogen, and nutrient concentrations were extracted from 685 original literature sources and compiled into a comprehensive database to support the analysis of global patterns of carbon and nutrients in litterfall and litter pools. Data are included from sources dating from 1827 to 1997. The reported data include the ... View entire text
