Global teabag index

22 June 2016

Today, we are botanists, studying breakdown of detritus. A group from Amsterdam has initiated a global teabag index project to compare decomposition of standardized plant material at different locations. They use Lipton green tea and Lipton Rooibosch tea as two different types of plant material. We are burrying over 800 teabags in experimental fields with and without grazing animals since 2006.

Later in the weblog, there is a post about the first harvest of decomposed teabags.
