Trophic structure of a macroarthropod litter food web in managed coniferous forest stands: a stable isotope analysis with delta 15N and delta 13C



Trophic structure of a macroarthropod litter food web in managed coniferous forest stands: a stable isotope analysis with delta 15N and delta 13C



Pedobiologia 49(2): 109-118



We studied the composition of a litter detrital community in a temperate coniferous forest in S. Oregon, USA using stable isotopes of nitrogen and carbon. Samples of mineral soil, bulk litter material, macroarthropods and understorey plants were collected from ten experimental forest stands. Half of the stands were previously thinned 17-42 years ago, the other half served as controls.
