Abstract: Excess litter accumulates on the soil surface of fenced grasslands and alters the abiotic environment and plant population dynamics. However, little is known about the effect of litter accumulation on the interaction between environmental factors and plant population characteristics in fenced grasslands, especially over different time scales. We applied a three-year litter removal experiment to two kinds of fenced grasslands in Inner Mongolia, China. We measured soil temperature in situ and plant phenology and… Show more

“…Litter could release secondary metabolites that not only suppress litter decomposition but also inhibit population renewal; and litter in the surface could also significantly inhibit plant growth by decreasing the light quantity and quality reaching the soil and inhibiting germination of some species (Hovstad & Ohlson, 2007;Ruprecht & Szab o, 2012). Previous studies have shown that the inhibitory effect of litter increases with the extension of the fencing duration (He et al, 2011;Hou et al, 2020;Xie & Su, 2020).…”
