Description/Standards Tabs


The forest floor functions as a wastebasket for all the layers above it. Materials accumulate most rapidly in the fall as the dead leaves of deciduous species fall to the ground. However, a steady rain of other materials (eg., seeds, twigs, limbs, feathers, bones, and feces) falls throughout the year.
