SPRUCE Production and Chemistry of Newly-Grown Fine Roots Assessed Using Root Ingrowth Cores in SPRUCE Experimental Plots beginning in 2014

Description

This dataset reports growth and chemistry of newly-grown fine roots from root ingrowth cores in the SPRUCE experimental enclosures. There is one comma separated file (.csv) that provides fine-root growth and chemistry data for the ten SPRUCE experimental enclosures from years 2014 to 2017. These data were used to assess the warming and elevated CO2 response of fine roots and also capture responses across microtopographical features and plant types.
