We present the results from a litter translocation experiment along a 2800-m elevation gradient in Peruvian tropical forests. The understanding of the environmental factors controlling litter decomposition is important in the description of the carbon and nutrient cycles of tropical ecosystems, and in predicting their response to long-term increases in temperature. Samples of litter from 15 species were transplanted across all five sites in the study, and decomposition was tracked over 448d....[Show more]
