AbstractEvaluates whether three longleaf pine savanna species (Andropogon ternarius, Aristida stricta var. beyrichiana, and Andropogon ternarius) affect soil processes differently. Greatest net C-min was found underneath plants, and specifically under A. stricta, compared to unvegetated areas. There were no differences among species for net N-min.
