Worlds apart: location above- or belowground determines plant litter decomposition in a semiarid Patagonian steppe

Paula Berenstecher, Patricia I. Araujo & Amy T. Austin
1. While considerable attention has been devoted to how precipitation modulates net primary productivity in arid and semiarid ecosystems, the emergence of multi-faceted controls on carbon (C) turnover suggests that there is much to be understood with respect to the mechanistic controls on plant litter decomposition. 2. In the Patagonian steppe, we conducted a long-term factorial experiment, evaluating the importance of position, litter quality, tissue origin and soil resources on rates of C turnover under...
