Estimate of coarse root biomass and nutrient contents of trees in a subtropical broadleaf forest in Taiwan



Estimate of coarse root biomass and nutrient contents of trees in a subtropical broadleaf forest in Taiwan



Taiwan Journal of Forest Science 21(2): 155-166



We studied the biomass and estimated the nutrient content of coarse roots (>=5 mm) of trees (diameter at breast height (dbh)>=10 cm) in a subtropical broadleaf forest at Fushan, northeastern Taiwan. The results from excavating 8 trees of 7 species (Castanopsis carlesii, Meliosma squamulata, Quercus longinux, Engelhardia roxburghiana, Machilus zuihoensis, Cryptocarya chinensis and Gordonia axillaris) indicated that the biomass of coarse roots accounted for 13.4-30.2% of the total tree biomass.
