Organic matter accretion, decomposition and mineralisation



Organic matter accretion, decomposition and mineralisation



Management of soil, nutrients and water in tropical plantation forests: 443-480



In natural and plantation forests, biogeochemical nutrient cycling is dominated by litter production and decomposition. In this chapter litter accumulation and decomposition is discussed and the nutrient cycling processes occurring in plantations compared and contrasted with those of the natural forests.
