Decomposition of macrophytes and dynamics of enzyme activities in subalpine marshes in Lake Tahoe basin, U.S.A


, : Decomposition of macrophytes and dynamics of enzyme activities in subalpine marshes in Lake Tahoe basin, U.S.A. Plant and Soil 266(1/2): 303-313

To reveal the environmental and substrate quality effects on decomposition process and enzyme activities, litterbag experiments containing Nuphar and Carex leaves, Nuphar rhizome, and Ranunculus shoot, were carried in five-subalpine marshes in Lake Tahoe basin, USA. Alkaline phosphatase, beta -glucosidase, and beta -xylosidase activities were determined by a fluorogenic method using methyumbelliferyl substrates.
