Data from: Litter removal in a tropical rain forest reduces fine root biomass and production but litter addition has few effects

Chadtip Rodtassana, Edmund V.J. Tanner & E. V. J. Tanner
Many old-growth lowland tropical rain forests are potentially nutrient limited, and it has long been thought that many such forests maintain growth by recycling nutrients from decomposing litter. We investigated this by continuously removing (for ten years) freshly fallen litter from five (45 m x 45 m) plots, adding it to five other plots, there were five controls. From monthly measures over one year we show that litter removal caused lower: fine root (≤2 mm...
