Abstract
This communication examines soil C stocks, organic C input through aboveground litterfall and estimated C turnover rates at forest transects, each consisting on a pure Pyrenean oak, a mixed Pyrenean oak-Scots pine and a pure Scots pine stand, on three Mediterranean forest ecotones. Our results suggest that forest composition influence surface C content likely through C input from litterfall, but not through differences in turnover rates, and that the effect of this input is less obvious in deeper soil layers.
