SPRUCE S1 Bog Pretreatment Seasonal Photosynthesis and Respiration of Trees, Shrubs, and Herbaceous Plants, 2010-2015

This data set contains the empirical biochemical, morphological, and physiological data collected between 2010 and 2015 on an herb (Maianthemum trifolium), understory shrubs (Rhododendron groenlandicum, Chamaedaphne calyculata, Kalmia polifolia and Vaccinium angustifolium) and  overstory trees (Picea mariana and Larix laricina) in the S1-Bog at the USDA Forest Service Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF) in northern Minnesota, USA. Data reported include the measurements of photosynthetic light and CO2 response curves, and dark respiration, as applied to standardized curve-fitting programs to estimate biochemical parameters.
