Studies on the rate of decay of wood litter on the forest floor. I. Some physical properties of decaying wood

, : Studies on the rate of decay of wood litter on the forest floor. I. Some physical properties of decaying wood. Japanese Journal of Ecology 25(1): 40-46

Physical characteristics of dead wood samples, e.g. apparent density ( rho ), water content (H), coefficient of desiccation ( mu ), solidity (s), and their interrelations under natural conditions, were studied in the evergreen Oak (Castanopsis cuspidata/Quercus spp.) forests of Japan. Values of H were fairly stable throughout the year, but the mean value and variance increased as rho decreased.
