Ivotuk Aboveground Biomass Codes (ASCII) [Copass, C.]



This dataset contains species names and their corresponding codes for the Ivotuk biomass dataset which contains aboveground biomass data collected in the four Ivotuk sites at approximately peak season biomass, summer 1998. The biomass was harvested in 20X50 cm plots, with 10 to 12 replicates per site. The plant tissues were further separated into live and dead and new versus old growth of leaves and stems. When possible, the biomass was sorted to species level. In general, data has been organized at the plant functional type level.

This dataset is available in both ASCII and EXCEL formats - For data browsing, we suggest ordering the EXCEL version and using EXCEL to plot the data. NOTE: This dataset contains the data in ASCII format.
