Data from: Leaf litter diversity and structure of microbial decomposer communities modulate litter decomposition in aquatic systems

Fabienne Santschi, Isabelle Gounand, Eric Harvey & Florian Altermatt
1. Leaf litter decomposition is a major ecosystem process that can link aquatic to terrestrial ecosystems by flows of nutrients. Biodiversity and ecosystem functioning research hypothesizes that the global loss of species leads to impaired decomposition rates and thus to slower recycling of nutrients. Especially in aquatic systems an understanding of diversity effects on litter decomposition is still incomplete. 2. Here we conducted an experiment to test two main factors associated with global species loss...
