In this study, litters
collected from two vegetation types (Pinus
and Eucalyptus dominated) and from
adjacent areas either fire affected (FA) or not fire affected (NFA) were
incubated as litter, or as water extracts of litter, in soils to determine fire
induced changes in nutrient pools, microbial biomass and microbial activity.
