Data were provided by the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest research program, funded by the National Science Foundation's Long-Term Ecological Research Program (DEB 2025755), US Forest Service Pacific Northwest Research Station, and Oregon State University.
While substantial efforts are made to ensure the accuracy of data and documentation, complete accuracy of data sets cannot be guaranteed. All data are made available "as is". The Andrews LTER shall not be liable for damages resulting from any use or misinterpretation of data sets.
Seasonal and annual rates of litterfall have been sampled at 6 permanent plots picked to represent a range of habitats and elevations. To assess variation in litterfall and decomposition and its role in nutrient cycling across an environmental gradient of moisture and temperature. This study is to be incorporated with others in the western and northern US to study the relationship of climate and vegetation on litterfall rates and decomposition.
