The estimated average litter production was 3.9.M- gy.e1ahar for one site and 4.6 .M- gy.e1ahar for the other; these figures are similar to those reported for holm-oak (Quercus ilex) forests in the same area. Seasonal litterfall patterns were typical of Mediterranean forest ecosystems. Leaves accounted for 46 to 78% of the total dry matter. Their annual weighted-average mineral composition was low in macronutrients (N 8-9; K 4-5; Mg 0.8-1.3; Ca 9-10 and P 0.4-1 m-)g.1g and relatively high in micronutrients such as Mn (2-2.2 m-)g.1g or Fe (0.3-0.4 m)-g..1g Minimum N and P concentrations were found during the growth period. Estimates of potential mineral return for an annual cycle were N 38-52, P 2.1-5.2, K 20-28, Ca 44-53 and Mg 5.4-5.0 k-,g.1ha depending on the site biomass and fertility" , "dc.format.mimetype": "application/pdf" , "dc.language.iso": "eng" , "dc.publisher": "Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA), EDP Sciences" , "dc.relation.ispartof": "© Annals of Forest Sciences, 1996, vol. 53, p. 1049-1058" , "dc.relation.ispartofseries": "Articles publicats (D-B)" , "dc.rights": "Tots els drets reservats" , "dc.subject": "Roure -- Catalunya -- Sant Hilari Sacalm" , "dc.subject": "Oak -- Catalonia -- Sant Hilari Sacalm" , "dc.subject": "Ecologia forestal -- Mediterrània, Regió" , "dc.subject": "Forest ecology -- Mediterranean Region" , "dc.subject": "Roure -- Catalunya -- Quart" , "dc.subject": "Oak -- Catalonia -- Quart" , "dc.title": "Litterfall and mineral return in two cork-oak forests in northeast spain" , "dc.type": "info:eu-repo/semantics/article" , "dc.rights.accessRights": "info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess" , "dc.type.version": "info:eu-repo/semantics/acceptedVersion" , "dc.identifier.eissn": "1297-966X" }
