Abstract
Four methods often used in preparing leaves for studies on the fate of leaves falling into mid-latitude streams were analyzed in a tropical rainforest stream. Both the techniques and plant species affected processing rates for four species of tropical wet forest riparian plants. More leaf area remained for fresh leaf disks than for dried leafs. Photometric rather than the usual dry leaf mass measurement techniques were used.
