Converting hardwood stands to pine caused little change in phosphorus, potassium, calcium and magnesium levels or the numbers of actinomycetes, bacteria, fungi and nematodes of three South Carolina forest soils during the first 7 years after conversion. Forest floor weights decreased to 9,085 kg/ha (54 percent of control) 3 years after conversion but increased to 18,440 kg/ha (90 percent of control) after 7 years. Forest Sci. 21:155-159.
