After joining several TreeDi projects as student helper in China, I decided to join TreeDi and the lab for my bachelor thesis.
In my bachelor thesis I will focus on litter functional dissimilarity effects on litter decomposition in subtropical forest supervised by Rémy Beugnon, Simone Cesarz and Nico Eisenhauer. In December 2018, we set up litterbags with various species mixture in a common garden experiments and collected them in September 2019. I will measure decomposition rates; i.e. weigh, carbon and nitrogen loss; of the different litter mixtures in order to measure species-specific decomposition rate as well as potential priming effects between species.
