Dynamic soil nutrient and moisture changes under decomposing vertebrate carcasses

Maria-Martina Quaggiotto, Philip S Barton, Maldwyn J Evans, Andrew Higgins, Craig Strong,

The decomposition of animal carcasses contributes to nutrient recycling in ecosystems worldwide, including by delivering nutrients to soil. Although several studies have characterised changes in soil chemistry occurring under carcasses, many ecological studies have occurred over extended post-mortem intervals and fine-scale temporal changes in physicochemical conditions are poorly understood. We ... Read more >>
