Cycling of aluminum and nutrients in litterfall of a red spruce picea rubens sarg. stand in maine usa



Cycling of aluminum and nutrients in litterfall of a red spruce picea rubens sarg. stand in maine usa



Canadian Journal of Forest Research 19(1): 18-23



Annual and seasonal variations in the concentration and total return of Al, Fe, Mn, Ca, Mg, K, Na, C, N, nd P in litterfall were studied for a period of 2 years in a mature red spruce stand in central Maine. Seasonal differences in elemental composition were large. The greatest change occurred n the autumn, when the concentrations of Al, Fe, N, P, and K declined, while Ca and Mg concentrations peaked. On an annual basis, litterfall contributed 0.5, 0.5, 1.1, 13.8, 2.1, 5.3, 0.2, 17.6, and 1.3 kg.cntdot.ha-1.cntdot.year-1 of Al, Fe, Mn, Ca, Mg, K, Na, N, and P, respectively to the forest floor. The input of Al in litterfall was 10 times as great as that in net canopy throughfall, indicating that the biological cycling of Al in litterfall was an important source of Al to the forest floor at this site.
