Role of leaf litter in above
ground wood decay
Snapshot: FPL researchers in Wood Durability and Protection investigate the contributions of leaf litter accumulation to the decay of wood in above ground exposure.
Image demonstrating the effects of leaf litter on decay of wood. Note that void space surrounding block is filled with leaf litter which led to accelerated decay due to elevated moisture and more exposure to active fungal inoculum.
