Abstract

1. The decomposition rate of litter mixtures can depend on interactions between compounds in the component species, i.e. in litter chemistry. Differences in litter N concentration are likely to lead to positive interaction (i.e. faster than expected decomposition) and differences in phenolic concentrations to a negative interaction. These interactions may become less positive (or more negative) when the litter is produced under elevated atmospheric CO
