Table 1 The stocks and ratios of plant debris across a successional gradient in the subalpine forest on eastern Qinghai-Tibet Plateau

From: Changes in plant debris and carbon stocks across a subalpine forest successional series

Successional series S1 S2 S3 S4 S5 S6
WD (Mg∙ha− 1) 31.73c 24.49c 51.49bc 36.07c 82.46a 77.27ab
NWD (Mg∙ha−1) 1.31a 0.70bc 0.82bc 1.07ab 0.43c 0.80bc
Plant debris (Mg∙ha−1) 33.04c 25.19c 52.31bc 37.14c 82.89a 78.08ab
CWD/FWD 39.75 10.57 79.02 32.33 84.55 435.63

  1. Stock is shown as means (n = 3). One-way ANOVA tests were applied among six successional series in WD, NWD, Plant debris, CWD/FWD and WD/NWD. Values followed by different lowercase letters mean significant difference among six successional series at P = 0.05 level. WD Woody debris, NWD Non-woody debris, CWD Coarse woody debris, FWD Fine woody debris
