Abstract

The response of litter decomposition to changing climate was studied on a transect set in Central Europe along parallel 52°N. Rates of decomposition of pine forest litter were measured for one year in 15 stands of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris) along the 1500 km (20°) W-E transect. The relationship between decomposition rate and the aforementioned climatic indices, was augmented by significant differences between sites classified in 3 categories according to diversity of plant cover. Decay was slowest on pure stands of Scots pine, significantly faster on mixed pine stands and fatest on anthropogenically-modified pine stands
