carbon to nitrogen ratio

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.

Long-term Intersite Decomposition Team (LIDET) Plant Litter Data at the Sevilleta National Wildlife Refuge, New Mexico (1990-2001)


Sevilleta data from a study testing the degree to which substrate quality and macroclimate control the carbon and nitrogen dynamics of decomposing leaf, wood, and fine-root litter in a 10-year, 28 site (17 LTER) team experiment.
