Leaf water potential by leaf age, Feb2017, PA-SLZ: Panama

Author(s): Wolfe B; Ely K

Dataset Information


Site Name: Bosque Protector San Lorenzo (Fort Sherman)

Variables: Leaf water potential

Date Range: Feb. 16, 2017 - Feb. 22, 2017

Description: Leaf water potential of sunlit canopy leaves of Apeiba membranacea (APEIME), Guatteria dumetorum (GUATDU), Miconia borealis (MICOBO), Terminalia amazonia (TERMAM), Virola multiflora (VIROSP) and Vochysia ferruginea (VOCHFE) species from the NGEE-Tropics Bosque Protector San Lorenzo (PA-SLZ) site in Panama, February 2017. Leaf water potential measured on young, mature and old leaves collected before dawn and around midday on 21 February and 22 February. This data was collected as part of the 2017 BNL–STRI leaf traits by age campaign. See related datasets (existing and future) for further sample details, leaf spectra, sap flow, leaf mass area (LMA), gas exchange and leaf chemistry.


Methods Description: Data was cross referenced against related datasets to ensure accuracy of species and leaf age.
