Biomass Allocation and Growth Data of Seeded Plants


This data set compiles information regarding the biomass of leaf, stem, and root biomass for plants.

Dataset Location:

Sites Georeferenced: No

Methods: Data was compiled from the primary literature, along with a significant portion of data from Cannell (1982).

Data Collected: species; age; height; leaf, root, shoot, stem & reproduction biomass; leaf, root, & stem growth

Best practices: Error code -999.  Both log10 and untransformed values are provided.

Additional considerations:  p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } These data are suitable for general questions, but the individual researcher should consider whether these data are suitable for use in answering population or site-specific questions.
