Contribution of mikania micrantha during secondary succession following slash and burn agriculture jhum in northeast india i. biomass litterfall and productivity



Contribution of mikania micrantha during secondary succession following slash and burn agriculture jhum in northeast india i. biomass litterfall and productivity



Forest Ecology and Management 22(3-4): 229-238



Mikania micrantha H.B.K., an exotic invader into north-east India, is a serious weed throughout the tropics. Biomass, litter production and above-ground net primary productivity of the plant communities during secondary succession up to 12 years of slash-and-burn agriculture increased, but the contribution by M. micrantha reached its maximum in a 4-year-old fallow after which there was a drastic decline. During the first 4 years of secondary succession, the total above-ground biomass of M. micrantha produced during the growing season between March to November was converted to litter due to total death of the above-ground parts of this species, resulting in an 'overshoot' of litter production during this phase.
