Summary

Abstract:
The data collected as part of the ABACUS project (Arctic Biosphere-Atmosphere Coupling at multiple Scales) work package 1 (studies on plant allocation and phenology, and respiration-production ratios for major community types via harvests, root measurement and isotope tracer experiments) and includes root measurements and isotope ratios of plants as follows.

The ABACUS research project is a major, linked programme of plant and soil studies, atmospheric measurements, aircraft and satellite observations, and modelling, to improve our understanding of the response of the arctic terrestrial biosphere to climate change.
