Litter decomposition related to secondary succession and species type under slash and burn agriculture jhum in northeastern india



Litter decomposition related to secondary succession and species type under slash and burn agriculture jhum in northeastern india



Proceedings of the Indian National Science Academy Part B Biological Sciences 50(1): 57-65



Leaf litter decomposition of 5 spp. during initial phases of secondary succession after slash and burn agriculture (jhum) was studied. While the weight loss decreased with the age of the fallow, the rate of nutrient release showed a reverse trend. This was related to microenvironmental changes during secondary succession. Differential decomposition for different species was related to initially high N level as in Eupatorium odoratum and Borreria hispida or to hard texture and coriaceous nature of the leaf as in B. hispida. [The other 3 spp. were Imperata cylindrica, Dendrocalamus hamiltonii and Dillenia indica].
