Relationship of litterfall to basal area and climatic variables in cool temperate forests of southern Tasmania


Relationship of litterfall to basal area and climatic variables in cool temperate forests of southern Tasmania



Australian journal of ecology 8(4): 425-431



DOI: 10.1111/j.1442-9993.1983.tb01339.x

Components of litter accession were measured for 2 yr in 2 regrowth eucalypt stands, a Nothofagus mixed forest, and a tall shrubland in the temperate forests of southern Tasmania. Total annual litterfall (t [tonne] ha-1) ranged from 4.77-5.64 in the regrowth eucalypt stands and 4.06-4.94 and 1.95-2.17 in the Nothofagus mixed forest and tall shrubland, respectively. The annual litterfall of individual tree species was correlated significantly with their respective basal area measured at 1.3 m height. The seasonal patterns of litterfall were most closely related to mean maximum temperatures. Fall of non-leaf material was also related to gale force winds associated with the spring equinox.
