Table 4 Correlation coefficients at significant level p < 0.01 for annual soil respiration rate, elevation, mean annual temperature (MAT), mean annual precipitation (MAP), and litterfall production in 10 Taiwanese study stands

From: Soil respiration patterns and rates at three Taiwanese forest plantations: dependence on elevation, temperature, precipitation, and litterfall

  Soil respiration (Mg C ha−1 year−1) Elevation (m) MAT (°C) MAP (mm) Litterfall (Mg C ha−1 year−1)
Soil respiration 1.00     
Elevation − 0.93 1.00    
MAT 0.94 − 1.00 1.00   
MAP − 0.92 0.94 − 0.94 1.00  
Litterfall 0.85 − 0.81 0.85 − 0.65 1.00
