The ORNL DAAC compiles, archives, and distributes gridded data on vegetation from regional to continental scales.
Data Set: Global Distribution of Root Turnover in Terrestrial EcosystemsData Set: Global Distribution of Root Turnover in Terrestrial Ecosystems
Estimates of root turnover rates were calculated from measurements of live root standing crop and belowground net primary production (BNPP) compiled from the primary literature. Vegetation characteristics, soil properties, and climate conditions were associated with turnover rates to examine patterns and controls for biomes worldwide.
