NPL01 Litterfall inputs to soil surface in watersheds with different fire treatments

Summary

Short name: 

NPL01

Abstract: 

Litter falling to the soil surface of tallgrass prairie was measured using 5 cm x 100 cm litterfall troughs. Mass, nitrogen, and phosphorus content were measured monthly or seasonally. Variables of interest include burning frequency and soil type.
