Fine litter fall

Yadvinder: Thanks for the answer. Another question: The decay is a problem for fine litter fall experiment, for that reason we must collect the material every 15 days. However, I think there is a small decay rate which is not considerate. Do we have any metodology for calculating this rate? I think we could be underestimating or overestimating our values of litter productivity in warm plots. What do you think about it?
