PEB01 Aboveground Net Primary Productivity of Tallgrass Prairie Based on Accumulated Plant Biomass in Grazing Exclsoures on Bison-Grazed Watersheds

Summary

Short name: 

PEB01

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 in grazing exclosures. Date from exclosures is used to determine long-term effects of bison grazing on aboveground net primary productivity.
