Dataset Abstract

Additional target trees were used in the CSPs to complete the species specimen needed for analysing C and N usage by trees.

Dataset Design

Trees were selected to complete the species numbers.

Spatial Extent

Comparative Study Plots of the BEF China Experiment.

Taxonomic Extent
