SPRUCE Photosynthesis and Respiration of Picea mariana and Larix laricina in SPRUCE Experimental Plots, 2016-2017

Description

Data set contains empirical physiological, morphological, and chemical data collected on two dominant conifer species, Picea mariana and Larix laricina, between May 2016 and August 2017 at the SPRUCE (Spruce and Peatland Responses Under Changing Environments) experiment that assesses the response of peatland ecosystems to whole-ecosystem warming and elevated atmospheric CO2 concentrations. Data reported include: measurements of light-saturated net photosynthesis and dark respiration at ambient atmospheric CO2 concentration (2016), CO2 response curves of light-saturated net photosynthesis (2017), leaf morphology (leaf mass per unit leaf area), and nitrogen content (on both mass and area basis).
