NPP Multi-Biome: Summary Data from Intensive Studies at 125 Sites, 1936-2006

This data set, NPP Multi-Biome: Summary Data from Intensive Studies at 125 Sites, 1936-2006, contains a single shapefile that provides site-level summary statistics from 125 sites in five biomes: boreal forest, grassland, temperate forest, tropical forest, and tundra. The spatial coverage is global and spans the time period from 1936 through 2006. Study periods, and both spatial and temporal resolution vary by site. Data include georeferenced location, elevation, mean annual precipitation, mean annual minimum and maximum air temperature, dominant soil type, ecoregion type, dominant plant species, general vegetation types, annual mean or peak living above- and below-ground biomass, average annual above- and below-ground Net Primary Productivity (NPP), and reference information. Additionally study sampling period and intervals, plot management, and long-term site management history are also provided.
