Abstract

Decomposition dynamic showed 3 phases: weight loss in phase I (1st wk) was mainly due to leaching; during phase II (1st yr) decomposition rates were high and varied with beech in the beech stand = fir > beech in the beech-fir stand; during phase III decomposition rates were low and there was some absolute increase in the weight of leaves of both species. N concentration of beech leaves in both stands increased markedly during phase II and slowly during phase III; the increase of N concentration in fir leaves was higher in phase III.-from English summary
