Abstract

IT must be a matter of common knowledge to persons interested in woodlands that some woods and copses have a more or less thick deposit of leaf-mould, whilst in others this covering is absent. It is not a question of the presence or absence of particular trees, e.g. oak or beech, and it often happens that within the limits of a single wood considerable differences exist, in respect of leaf-mould formation, in different parts of it.
