Low Arctic monitoring of plant community composition and dynamics


This dataset contains annual assessment of plant community composition and biomass production near Kangerlussuaq, Greenland. These data derive from an ongoing experiment that involves use of large-herbivore exclosures and passive warming chambers to investigate influences of warming and herbivory on plant community dynamics.
