Benbow, M. Eric; Barton, Philip; Ulyshen, Michael D.; Beasley, James C.; DeVault, Travis L.; Strickland, Michael S.; Tomberlin, Jeffrey K.; Jordan, Heather R.; Pechal, Jennifer L.


Decomposition contributes to global ecosystem function by contributing to nutrient recycling, energy flow, and limiting biomass accumulation. The decomposer organisms influencing this process form diverse, complex, and highly dynamic communities that often specialize on different plant or animal resources. Despite performing the same net role, there is a need to conceptually synthesize information on the structure and function of decomposer communities across the spectrum of dead plant and...[Show more]
