Dynamics of nitrogen (15N) in decomposing Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) needle litter. Long-term decomposition in a Scots pine forest. VI



Dynamics of nitrogen (15N) in decomposing Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) needle litter. Long-term decomposition in a Scots pine forest. VI



Canadian Journal of Botany 66(8): 1539-1546



An account is given of the uptake and release of N during litter decomposition, from laboratory experiments (for 1 yr) and studies (for 3 yr) in a clear felled area and in a mature Scots pine stand, using needle litter from trees fertilized with NH4NO3 containing 1% excess of 15N. Simultaneous release and uptake of N occurred in the litter.
