Description

A global data set of root biomass, rooting profiles, and concentrations nutrients in roots was compiled from the primary literature and used to study distributions of root properties. This data set consists of estimates of fine root biomass and specific area, site characteristics. This data set provides analysis of rooting patterns for terrestrial biomes and compare distributions for various plant functional groups.
