Interaction of soil fauna and plant litter composition on decomposition processes across the litter-soil interface

Yolima Carrillo & Becky Ball
Plant chemical composition and the soil community are known to influence litter and soil organic matter decomposition. Although these two factors are likely to interact, their mechanisms and outcomes of interaction are not well understood. Studies of their interactive effects are rare and usually focus on carbon dynamics of litter, while nutrient dynamics in the underlying soil have been ignored. Further, litter and soil are considered to constitute a decomposition continuum, but whether litter and...
