Forest Floor Nutrient Dynamics in Chestnut Plantation Ecosystems

Kyriaki Kitikidou, Athanasios G. Papaioannou

Abstract


Nutrient content and detrital biomass in the forest floor of a mature chestnut plantation at Karies (Agio Oros mountain, Athos peninsula, northern Greece) was measured in autumn of the year 2010. These measurements were compared to their expected values (bibliography based values). All nutrients storage and organic matter were fairly similar, even though measurements in this study were slightly higher than expected.
