Appendix S1. Nutrient treatments: (a) amounts of N and P supplied to each microcosm in Experiment 1; (b) amounts of N and P and of other elements supplied to the plants producing the litter for Experiment 2.
Fig. S1. Nitrogen concentration, phosphorus concentration and mass loss of leaf litter from each of the four Carex species in Experiment 2.
Table S1. ANOVA results (F-ratios and significance levels) for the effects of the N : P supply ratio during plant growth, nutrient supply level during plant growth and Carex species on litter mass loss as well as nutrient (N, P) release from the litter during 10 weeks of decomposition in laboratory microcosms (Experiment 2).
