IAI-Data-CRN_012_Marchesini_Soil_Temp: Soil temperature recorded during the massive flowering and death of the bamboo Chusquea culeou
Entry ID: IAIDIS784

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: During 2001 a native forest in the South of Argentina experienced the
massive flowering and death of the bamboo Chusquea culeou, a dominant
understory species. We proposed to assess the impact of this event on:
a) the environmental factors and b) the population dynamics of forest
vegetation. We recorded air and soil temperature, relative air
humidity and light intensity under two conditions: death and green
bamboo. We also registered the survirvoship, growth and herbivory
rates on Nothofagus nervosa, a canopy dominant tree and Chusquea
culeou seedlings. We recorded soil temperature using digital
thermometer (Taylor) in diferents moments in the year.
