Author(s): Rogers A; Ely K; Kinlock N; Serbin S; Wu J

Dataset Information


Site Name: Bosque Protector San Lorenzo (Fort Sherman)

Variables: Leaf chemistry

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

Description: This dataset contains carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen content measurements 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. Data was collected from the NGEE-Tropics Bosque Protector San Lorenzo (PA-SLZ) site in Panama in February of 2017 as part of the 2017 Brookhaven National Lab–Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute leaf traits by age campaign. A PDF with full sapling protocol is included in this dataset, along with metadata files in Excel file format. Data is in both CSV (Panama2017_CHN.csv) and Excel file formats. See related datasets for further sample details, leaf spectra, sap flow, leaf water potential, leaf mass per area (LMA), and gas exchange measurements.


Methods Description: Data cross referenced against related datasets to ensure accuracy of species and leaf age. Standards used during analysis as per instrument instructions.
