Eucalyptus plantations affect fungal communities associated with leaf-litter decomposition in Iberian streams



Eucalyptus plantations affect fungal communities associated with leaf-litter decomposition in Iberian streams



Archiv fur Hydrobiologie 166(4): 467-490



The replacement of diverse deciduous forests by eucalyptus plantations changes the timing, quality and quantity of litter inputs to streams, which has the potential to affect the activity of decomposers and thus ecosystem functioning.
