Data from: Litter conversion into detritivore faeces reshuffles the quality control over C and N dynamics during decomposition

François-Xavier Joly, Sylvain Coq, Mathieu Coulis, Johanne Nahmani & Stephan Hattenschwiler
1. In many terrestrial ecosystems, detritivorous soil organisms ingest large amounts of leaf litter returning most of it to the soil as faeces. Such conversion of leaf litter into faeces may stimulate decomposition by increasing the surface area available for microbial colonization. Yet, experimental support for either the outcome or the mechanism of these conversion effects is lacking. 2. Based on the hypothesis that the identity of plant species from which leaf litter is transformed...
