Abstract

The spatial heterogeneity of element fluxes was quantified by measuring litterfall, throughfall and litter decomposition for 1 y in 30 randomly located sampling areas in a lowland dipterocarp rain forest. The idea tested was that turnover of elements is more variable than turnover of dry matter in a forest with extremely high tree species diversity. In spite of the low fertility of the soil (an ultisol), total litter production (leaves, trash, and wood <2 cm in diameter) was high (1105 g m
