PAB01 Aboveground Net Primary Productivity of Tallgrass Prairie Based on Accumulated Plant Biomass on Core LTER Watersheds (001d, 004b, 020b)

Summary

Short name: 

PAB01

Abstract: 

Data set contains estimates of end-of-season standing crop biomass (grams per square meter) of live graminoids, forbs, woody plants, and previous year's dead vegetation for 2 soil types (shallow and deep) on three core LTER watersheds representing three fire frequency treatments. Twenty quadrats (0.1 square meters) are harvested for each soil/treatment type. NOTE: Early (April) and mid-season (July) biomass was collected from 1983-1988, and these data are available by request.
