NPP Grassland: Badkhyz, Turkmenistan, 1948-1982Entry ID: NPP_BDK
Abstract: Productivity of an ephemeral desert grassland was determined at the Badkhyz Nature Reserve Station in southern Turkmenistan, between 1948 and 1982. Monthly dynamics of above-ground plant biomass were made during the growing season (January-May) from 1948 to 1963, and the record of peak live biomass continues until 1982, with a gap from 1973 to 1976. These data are part of a series of grassland ... data sets recently assembled and checked by Dr. Tagir Gilmanov, which cover a wide range of climate and "continentality" (increasing maximum summer temperatures, decreasing precipitation) from the North-West to the South-East of the Commonwealth of Independent States (former USSR). Climate data for this site are also available: see Any Other Relevant Information in section 11 of this document. More information on the entire Net Primary Production Project can be found at the NPP homepage.
