1.how and why would you expect wood decay rates to compare to that of leaves? Be sure to include a description of the sequence of decaying in your answer 

2. how might removal of tree biomass through clear cut logging change the rate of decomposition dynamics of a forest floor of an area? (be sure to explain the relationship between clear cutting and leaf litter)

3. how do the concepts of this experiment relate to a composting program such as that found in the city of Toronto? Be sure to define composting.
