Litter production of a semideciduous mesophytic forest in rio claro municipality sao paulo brazil



Litter production of a semideciduous mesophytic forest in rio claro municipality sao paulo brazil



Revista Brasileira de Biologia 49(3): 633-640



The litter production of a semideciduous mesophytic forest, located between 47.degree.28'WG and 22.degree.22'S and at 630 m.s.m., was estimated thorough monthly collections for 3 years. The region has a Cwa-type of climate and the soil types found are: reddishyellow latosol and dark-red ortho-latosol. The annual litter production was estimated at 8643 .+-. 133,76 kg/ha. The leaf litter was the major contribution to the total (62,03%), followed by the fractions of branches (32,62%), fruits (3,99%) flowers (1,34%). The decomposition constant (K) was 1.15 and the time required for the disappearance of 50% of the litter was 219 days.
