OPD01 Konza Prairie standing dead and litter decomposition (1981-1983)

Summary

Short name: 

OPD01

Abstract: 

Standing dead and litter decomposition of big bluestem foliage and flowering stems were measured for two years using litterbag methods. Mass, nitrogen and phosphorus content were measured.
