Effects of clear-cut logging on wood breakdown in Appalachian mountain streams



Effects of clear-cut logging on wood breakdown in Appalachian mountain streams



American Midland Naturalist 119(1): 143-155



Sticks of Quercus rubra, about 10 cm long and in 3 size classes (3, 1-2 and <1 cm diam.) were placed in two second-order streams in Macon County, North Carolina. One stream drained a catchment logged in 1976 and the other an undisturbed catchment. Breakdown rates were monitored over 5 yr. In both streams breakdown rates of smaller sticks were significantly faster than those of larger sticks.
