Consistent pattern of higher lability of leaves from high latitudes for both native Phragmites australis and exotic Spartina alterniflora

Youzheng Zhang, Steven Pennings, Zixia Liu, Bo Li & Jihua Wu
1. Global variation in litter decomposition rates is driven by climate, decomposer taxa and litter quality. Most large-scale studies of litter quality have made comparisons across species, rather than within a species sourced from different latitudes. Here, we aim to explore latitudinal variation in leaf litter decomposition rate and litter quality within a species. 2. We investigated whether the typical interspecific pattern of increased litter lability at higher latitudes also holds within plant species, by...
