Leaf, live wood (tree stem), and soil respiration were measured along with additional environmental factors over a 1-yr period in a Central Amazon terra firme forest and are provided in this data set as three comma delimited data files. Investigations were carried out at an INPA reserve located along the ZF2 road at km 34 [LBA 34] on two 20 x 2500 m permanent forest inventory plots referred to as the Jacaranda plots (-2.6091 degrees S, -60.2093 degrees W). These long and narrow plots capture ecosystem variation associated with the undulating local topography. Leaf respiration measurements were also made at the tower located at ZF-2 road (km 14 [LBA 14]. Leaf respiration was measured during July and August 2001, woody respiration in August 2000 and June 2001, and soil respiration between July 2000 and June 2001 at 4 to 6-wk intervals. Understanding how tropical forest carbon balance will respond to global change requires knowledge of individual heterotrophic and autotrophic respiratory sources, together with factors that control respiratory variability. These data were used to estimate ecosystem leaf, live wood and soil respiration with detailed information provided in Chambers et al. (2004).
