Appendix C. Production of 15 amino acids by protein depolymerization during decomposition of four beech litter types (Achenkirch, Klausenleopoldsdorf, Ossiach, Schottenwald) varying in elemental and stoichiometric quality.
Fig. C1. Protein depolymerization (µg N g-1 d.w. d-1) during decomposition of four beech litter types (sites: AK, Achenkirch; KL, Klausenleopoldsdorf; OS, Ossiach; SW, Schottenwald) varying in elemental and stoichiometric quality (A, alanine; G, glycine; V, valine; L, leucine; I, isoleucine; P, proline; T, threonine; S, serine; N, asparagine; D, aspartate; Q, glutamine; E, glutamate; F, phenylalanine; K, lysine; Y, tyrosine). Two harvests were performed (3 and 6 months after inoculation of the litter). Values are means of five mesocosms ± 1 SE.
