Short summary
Global climate change may increase the litter inputs in some ecosystems impacting the soil–plant system functioning. We added litter, to the 10–20 cm subsoil layer of a steppe community at different rates. Small litter additions had no effect on the stoichiometry, whereas the highest additions (not realistic compared to the future predictions) modified the system slightly. It suggests that the grassland studied here is resilient to more plausible inputs in terms of stoichiometric functioning.
