Studies on the humus forms of forest soils. I. Microscopic observation and elementary analysis of fractionated horizons of Higashiyama soil



Studies on the humus forms of forest soils. I. Microscopic observation and elementary analysis of fractionated horizons of Higashiyama soil



Soil Science and Plant Nutrition 22(1): 15-22



In the L and F layers, plant remains became smaller in size, darker in color, and mineral particles adhering to them increased as decomposition progressed. Barks and twigs seemed to decompose with more difficulty than did leaves. The same was true for the epidermis of leaves as compared with the mesophyll. In the fraction <60 mesh, tissues of plant remains were hardly recognizable, and abundant black globular particles, possibly droppings of soil fauna, were present.
