ABSTRACT
The present study reports on the seasonal variation of standing crop litter in a tropical deciduous and a semideciduous forest in Chamela, Jalisco, México. The amount of surface litter was, on average, higher in the semideciduous forest, Where the turnover rate of standing crop litter was faster. The temporal variation in the mean amount of standing crop litter exhibited a marked seasonal pattern. Surface litter tended to accumulate during the dry season when litterfall was at its maximum, and decreased considerably as a result of decomposition during the rainy season.
