LFH Presence

Fragment of a discussion from Course talk:APBI200

Why are LFH horizons only present in forest ecosystems? Is there insufficient litter for LFH horizons to form in non-forest ecosystems?

In forest ecosystems litter input is high and decomposition < input, thus litter accumulates forming LFH horizons

That makes sense, thank you!
