Deciduous trees are giant flowering plants. They include oaks, maples, and beeches, and they grow in many parts of the world. The word deciduous means to “fall off,” and every fall these trees shed their leaves. Most deciduous trees are broad-leaved, with wide, flat leaves. In deciduous forests with annual pulses of leaf drop, it is possible to measure litter breakdown directly from litter samples taken through time. If combined with estimates of the mass of litterfall, these samples provide a good measure of the dynamics of litter breakdown (Fig. ) (Witkamp and van der Drift, ).As the year progresses the litter layer mass, L, becomes transformed into F.
