Datasets related to Arctic plant growth, carbon allocation and carbon dynamics, collected as part of the ABACUS project (Arctic Biosphere-Atmosphere Coupling at multiple Scales), 2006-2008


The data collected as part of the ABACUS 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) includes root measurements and isotope ratios of plants.

The ABACUS (Arctic Biosphere-Atmosphere Coupling at multiple Scales) 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.
