Data Set Overview
|Data set||Global Distribution of Root Nutrient Concentrations in Terrestrial Ecosystems|
|Time Period||1959-01-01 to 1997-01-01|
Nutrient measurements for fine roots were compiled from 56 published studies providing information on 372 different combinations of species, root diameter, rooting depths, and soils at a variety of locations. The compilation was used to examine dynamics of 14 nutrients, including translocation properties of roots of varying size and status.
