SPRUCE S1 Bog Vegetation Allometric and Biomass Data: 2010-2011

This data set reports the results of measurements on sampled aboveground tissues of trees (Picea mariana and Larix laricina), shrubs (Ledum, Chamaedaphne, and Vaccinium), and ground layer vegetation (all species) of the S1 Bog located in areas adjacent to planned experimental study plots.  Ground layer vegetation was sampled from both hummocks and hollows, within a 0.25 m2 plot, to evaluate total standing biomass of bog vegetation at or near the peak of annual production.  Vegetation was harvested, processed, and measured in July of 2010 and again in June of 2011.
