Effect of vegetation type on decomposition rates of wood in Drenthe, The Netherlands
Acta botanica neerlandica , Volume 37 - Issue 2 p. 307- 312
The effect of vegetation type on decomposition rates of wood was studied. Wood of Juniperus communis was laid down in 11 different habitats, and wood of Quercus robur, Pinus sylvestris, and Juniperus communis was laid down together in six different habitats. There were large differences in the decomposition constant and mycofloristic composition between different vegetation types. Species diversity of secondary opportunistic fungal species is positively correlated with decomposition of juniper-wood, whereas no significant correlation was found between diversity of basidiomycetes and decomposition of juniper-wood. All vegetation types possessed two or more characteristic species. Only very few species showed substrate specificity.
