Like Tshemdona, many villages in Paro have designated areas for grazing cattle in summer, and community forests for the collection of leaf litter
Physicochemical Analysis of Crop Residues and Leaf Litters. The pH was measured in [H.sub.2]O (ratio soil:water 1:2.5w/v).
Physicochemical Properties of Crop Residues and Leaf Litters. A summary of some physicochemical properties of the samples is presented in Table 3.
In order to investigate the effect of litter decomposition on soil polarization of planted forests in the hilly area of Loess Plateau, China, humus soil and litter (leaf litter and fine roots) were sampled in three typical coniferous forests, and 4 treatments as --soil +leaf litter||, --soil + roots||, --soil+ leaf litter + roots, and CK were set for laboratory incubation experiment in this research.
Based on analyzing the polarization ratios by PCA (principal component analysis) method, the results of comprehensive soil properties is showed as follows: both of leaf litter and roots resulted in negative polarization in the Platycladus orientalis and Larix principis-rupprechtii forest soil, conversely, as for the Pinus tabulaeformis forest soil, both of leaf litter and roots resulted in positive polarization.
In this study, a process of combined acid-enzymatic hydrolysis of leaf litter using sulfuric acid and crude enzyme extract from rice bran culture of Aspergillus niger AK10 (Cha et al., 2010) was developed.
Enzymatic digestion of shredded leaf litter using crude enzyme AK10ase
The silkworm litter i.e., the larval excreta was collected from the silkworm rearing units in and around Salem town, Tamil Nadu, India and the leaf litters
were collected locally.
Decomposition of leaf litter
was determined using the litter bag technique .
Studies have compared assemblages of tardigrades in leaf litter
from different biomes or continents.
