ele1837-sup-0001-FigureS1.pdfapplication/PDF48KFigure S1. Litter chemistry across three years of decomposition (108, 487 and 730 days for corn and grass, plus 17 days for grass). Values depict the relative abundance (%) of all chemical classes within litter and management types. Significant main effects and interactions are noted below each chemical class: L – litter type; M – management type; T – time (P < 0.05). Blue – conventionally tilled (CT); red – no-till (NT); green – old field (OF). Lower case letters denote least square mean differences due to management intensity within litter types. Dashed lines represent relative abundances at time zero.
ele1837-sup-0002-TableS1.pdfapplication/PDF34KTable S1. ANOVA results (F and P-values) for biological data showing main effects and two- and three-way interactions.
ele1837-sup-0003-TableS2.pdfapplication/PDF35KTable S2. Pearson's coefficients (r) and slopes (ka) for correlations between percentage mass loss and integrated enzyme activities (mol mg−1 litter) within management and litter types.
