IAI-Data-CRN_012_FLOMBAUM_COV-BIOM: Estimate of aboveground net primary production and biomass measuring vegetation cover
Entry ID: IAIDIS726

Abstract: Our objective was to develop a fast and nondestructive method to
estimate aboveground net primary production and biomass measuring
vegetation cover. We double sampled vegetation cover and biomass in
150 and 50 plots for shrubs and grasses in the patagonian steppe. We
performed simple linear regressions between vegetation cover and
biomass for dominant species (shrubs: Mullinum spinosum, Senecio
