This dataset reports full-spectrum (350-2500 nm) reflectance measurements of diverse plant communities at the plot-level and individual plant species at the leaf-level, at multiple sites across northern Alaska during the 2017 and 2018 summer field seasons. Plot-level reflectance data (1 m2) include an assemblage of vascular and non-vascular species comprising tundra plant communities, while leaf-level scans are specific to one particular tundra species. Reflectance measurements were collected using a HR-1024i spectrometer and data were calibrated using a Spectralon white reference panel during sampling to correct for changing light conditions. Sampling methods and data and metadata structure follow that of the Ecological Spectral Information System (EcoSIS) Spectral Library.
