Accumulation and decay of litter and net production of forest in tropical West Africa


, : Accumulation and decay of litter and net production of forest in tropical West Africa. Oikos 24(3): 430-435

he fall of small litter (leaves, twigs < 2.5 cm in diameter, unidentifiable debris, and fruits + seeds + flowers) in a moist semi-deciduous forest was measured at monthly intervals for 26 months and the fall of wood litter during a six month period was measured once. Litter fall was greatest from January to the beginning of March with a smaller peak from September to December.
