Abstract

The AA. evaluated the contribution of dead wood to the total carbon flux in 2 headwaters forested streams in northern Spain, one running under mature deciduous forest, the other under eucalyptus plantations. Breakdown rates were measured from branches and compared with the breakdown loss of leaf litter calculated for the same reaches. So, fine dead wood contributes to a significant fraction of the total breakdown of allochtonous organic matter in the studied streams; other sizes of dead wood increase the breakdown by an order of magnitude, and thus can result in a large part of the carbon flux being derived from wood
