Abstract:
Forest gap plays an important role in optimizing and adjusting the structure of plantation. However, researchers are not clear whether the gap size affects mass loss, or which gap size contributes more to litter decomposition. This research set up a field litterbag experiment to study the effects of different forest gap size on mass loss of Pinus massoniana (Pm) and Cinnamomum camphora (Cc) leaf litter. The Pm plantation was thinned to establish seven different gap sizes (G1: 100 m2, G2: 225 m2, G3: 400 m2, G4: 625 m2, G5: 900 m2, G6: 1 225 m2, G7: 1 600 m2); closed canopy was used as the control. The results showed 1) the forest gap size had significant effect on mass loss of Pm and Cc, with the k value of Olson decomposition model as G4 > G1 > CK > G2 > G3 > G5 > G6 > G7 in Pm, and G2 > G4 > G1 > CK > G5 > G6 > G7 > G3 in Cc. Compared with small and large forest gaps, those of medium sized (G4) promoted the mass loss rate of Cc and Pm. 2) In both Pm and Cc, the mass loss rate (per 30 days) first increased and then decreased in the 90-day period. After one year decomposition, the mass loss rate in 3 mesh sizes was 0.04 mm (35%) < 0.5 mm (43%) < 3 mm (51%) in Pm, and 0.04 mm (42%) < 0.5 mm (49%) < 3 mm (60%) in Cc. The 95% decomposition time was 3.6 years for Cc and 4.35 years for Pm, showing a higher mass loss rates (per 30days) in Pm than in Cc. The results indicated that forest gap size has significant effect on mass loss rate of Pm and Cc leaf litter. In reconstructing low-function forest, we can take advantage of medium-sized gaps and introduce native broad-leaf tree species Cc to accelerate nutrient cycling and maintain the soil fertility of Pm plantations.
