Canadian Transect of Soils and Vegetation for the Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map
This dataset contains Canadian Transect of Soils and Vegetation for the Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map data. The report summarizes environmental, vegetation, and soil data collected from 116 releves along a 2000-km transect from Amund Ringnes, Axel Heiberg, and Ellesmere Islands in the northern Canadian Arctic to a site at the southern edge of the Canadian tundra. Data include sample site descriptions (e.g., thaw depths, aspect, and surficial geology); soil pH, chemistry, and texture; and vascular, bryophyte, and lichen species cover. Scientists involved in the Circumpolar Arctic Vegetation Map (CAVM) project, with the help of undergraduate students enrolled in a University of Minnesota field course, conducted this north-south transect study of the Canadian Arctic to investigate large-scale climate-related variations in vegetation.
