Pilot experiment: performance, biomass & herbivory

Usage Rights

This data is Private.

Dataset Abstract

Several growth parameters, biomass and herbivore estimate for SP4 pilot experiment. Data taken over the course of two years.

Spatial Extent

Pilot experiment, Xingangshan

Temporal Extent

Growth parameter measured and herbivory estimates were taken during summer June/July 2011. Biomass was weighed during summer 2012.

Measurement Circumstances

Biomass estimates are incomplete due to flood damage on bag labels. Missing biomass was completed using regression analysis.
