Climatic and environmental constraints on aboveground-belowground linkages on the Antarctic Peninsula
Entry ID: Antarctic_Peninsula_Constraints_on_Above_and_Belowground_Linkages_1

Abstract: From multiple sites over a latitudinal gradient along the Antarctic Peninsula, we collected up to 20 soil and vegetation samples from each of the available aboveground cover types (including moss, grass, fellfield, lichen, and algae). On the samples, we measured:

Soil chemical parameters, including: gravimetric soil water content, inorganic extractable nitrogen (KCl extracts measured on a Lachat ... View entire text

Purpose: After initial publication by the researchers, the data are available for download to personal computers for ad-hoc end-user analysis.
