Dataset Abstract

This dataset provides information about the remaining litter mass fom all Unlabelled NILEx ROPs at the end of the experiment

Dataset Design

4 blocks;
12 plots per block (11 with leaves, 1 bare ground) with leaves of 1, 2 or 4 species;
Block A and D with leaves of species pool 1;
Block B and C with leaves of species pool 2;
initial litter mass per plot = 60g

Spatial Extent

Castanea mollissima plantation near site B

Taxonomic Extent

Species pool 1 (block 1 and 3): Senescent leaves of Liquidambar formosana, Machilus thumbergii, Quercus serrata, Schima superba; Species pool 2 (block 2 and 4): Schima superba, Castanopsis eyrei, Castanea henryi, Cyclobalanopsis glauca

Data Analysis

mass_perc = mass_g/60*100
