Description

This dataset contains foliar tissue C and N bulk isotopic signatures (delta 13C, delta 15N) of dominant wetland herbaceous species collected at six sites in the Atchafalaya (N = 3) and Terrebonne (N = 3) basins in coastal Louisiana. Five of the sites are from the Coastwide Reference Monitoring System (CRMS) and one site is the Mike Island Site in the Wax Lake Delta (WLD). For the herbaceous wetland sites, Aboveground biomass (AGB) was harvested inside duplicate plots (0.25 m2), located 5 m apart at each sampling station. All plant material within each plot was clipped at soil level, stored in plastic bags, and transported to the laboratory for further analyses. In the lab, plant tissue (foliar) C and N bulk isotopic signatures were analyzed for two dominant plant species from each site using a Thermo Scientific Delta V Plus CF-IRMS coupled to a Carlo-Erba 1108 elemental analyzer via a ConFlo IV interface (Thermo Fisher Scientific, Waltham, MA, USA). The data were collected during 2021-08-19 to 2021-08-27 during the Delta-X Fall 2021 deployment.
