Title Impact of functional attributes of tree species on litter decomposition, soil properties and biodiversity in forests
Period 02 / 2012 - 07 / 2016

Abstract

The ecosystem engineering function of trees is poorly understood. A chemical analysis of the biomass, litter and soil associated with different tree species will (1) quantify their role in nutrient budgets of different forests and (2)underpin the relevance of intimate tree-soil interactions for improving soil conditions and biodiversity.
