In this study, using meta-analysis techniques and global literature data, we provide evidence for worldwide interspecific coordination in leaf-root-stem decomposability, and quantify the relative roles of litters from above- and below-ground plant organs in ecosystem labile organic matter dynamics. Based on these results, we propose a new conceptual framework relating plant traits to organic matter dynamics taking the whole-plant perspective.
