Koert G. van Geffen, Lourens Poorter, Ute Sass-Klaassen, Richard S. P. van Logtestijn, and Johannes H. C. Cornelissen. 2010. The trait contribution to wood decomposition rates of 15 Neotropical tree species. Ecology 91:3686–3697.

Appendix B. Decomposition rates of different wood types

FIG. B1. Decomposition rates of the three different wood types (sapwood with soil contact (SSC), sapwood without soil contact (SNSC), heartwood (HW)) for the 15 tree species separately. Sample sizes vary between 8 and 10 depending on species (see Table 1 in article). Bars indicate the standard error of the mean. Letters indicate intra-specific differences in decomposition rate of different wood types (Tukeys HSD P < 0.05). Intra-specific differences are non-significant when no letters are shown.
