Table 1 Mean and SE of measured soil parameters

From: Urban-induced changes in tree leaf litter accelerate decomposition

  Periurban (SE) Urban (SE) p value
Temperature [°C] 13.0 (±0.2) 13.3 (±0.1) <0.1
Water content [g g−1 soil] 0.17 (±0.01) 0.21 (±0.01) <0.05
pH 4.2 (3.4 to 6.5) 4.5 (3.7 to 6.2) n.s.
EC [μS cm−1] 107 (±5) 165 (±14) <0.05
  1. Measured soil parameters (min. and max. for pH) over the course of the experiment at the periurban (n = 15) and urban (n = 15) decomposition sites with the respective t-test p values (n.s., not significant).
