Project: Effects of tree species specific litter and root decompostition products on the mobility of cadmium and zinc in sandy soils

project duration
01-JAN-09 – 31-DEC-12
Litter decomposition and fine root turnover are important within the mobilization process of metals. Hence, the goal of this project is to quantify the effects of decomposition processes of leaf litter and roots under differen tree species on the mobility of Cd and Zn, by means of the modifications in pH and percent base saturation and the different OC-fractions that will be originated during those decomposition processes
