Here we present a comparison of four native tree species from the middle Uruguay River basin, Brazil-Argentine frontier: Heliocarpus americanus L.
(Malvaceae), Maclura tinctoria (L.) D. Don ex Steud.
(Moraceae), Schinus terebinthifolius Raddi (Anacardiaceae) and Cordia trichotoma (Vell.) Arrab. ex Steud.
(Boraginaceae).
We obtained data on initial growth, light interception, litterfall and litter mineral contents.
H.
americanus presented the greatest height and the lowest value of height-crown width ratio.
H. americanus and M.
tinctoria presented the highest light interception rate ( 94 %) and highest litterfall (879 ± 151 and 792 ± 164 g·m-2·year-1, respectively).
For the set of species, the lowest litterfall occurred between July and September.
H.
americanus presented the highest K concentration (1.13%) in the litter, while C. trichotoma had the hig...
