Pantropical Tree Sapwood Hydraulic Properties, 1991 - 2014

Author(s): Christoffersen B


Dataset Information

Site ID: XX-PTr

Site Name: Pantropical site

Variables: Sapwood pressure-volume (PV) Parameters

Date Range: April 1, 1991 - Sept. 29, 2014

Description: Description: Sapwood pressure-volume parameters (osmotic potential at full turgor, turgor loss point, bulk elastic modulus, and others). Determined by curve-fitting (following methods in http://prometheuswiki.publish.csiro.au/tiki-index.php?page=Leaf+pressure-volume+curve+parameters) to raw isotherm data (paired measurements of water content and water potential). Raw data were digitized from published figures. Data are from natural tropical and subtropical forests or savannas and span rainfall gradients from deciduous dry tropical forests to everwet tropical forests, and come from the following countries: Argentina, Panama, Brazil, Costa Rica, and Madagascar. sapwood_PV_recal_headers.csv: description of variables in the two files below sapwood_PV_recal_corrected.csv: bias-corrected sapwood PV data (see Methods in the associated reference) sapwood_PV_recal_uncorrected.csv: uncorrected sapwood PV data (see Methods in the associated reference) sapwood_PV_references.csv: citation, bibliographic reference, and DOI for the published references from which data were extracted
