Dataset Information


Site Name: CAM2: Cambalache State Forest; CAR1: Carite State Forest; Fundacion Luis Munoz Marin (FLMM); SB2: Sabana 2; International Institute of Tropical Forestry

Variables: Leaf phenology

Date Range: March 3, 2017 - March 9, 2017

Description: This data package includes details of leaves sampled for leaf spectra and chemistry from 5 sites in Puerto Rico, in March of 2017. Sunlit canopy and shaded leaves of 66 species were collected. Data for each sample includes species, leaf age, type of analysis (spectroscopy, gas exchange, chemistry), sample number and sample photographs. The data package includes a spreadsheet with sample information and a zip file of photographs (1.6 GB). This data was collected as part of the 2017 BNL–G-LiHT leaf spectra campaign. See related datasets for leaf spectral reflectance and transmittance, leaf mass area (LMA), and leaf chemistry. Note that leaf sample details are also included in related datasets.


Methods Description: Sample details were recorded at the time of field sampling. Leaf samples were photographed with unique SampleID label. Species were identified either using existing, previously identified trees or by later conducting species identification based on sample vouchers. Sample records were cross checked against other related datasets (NGT0078, 79) for consistency of species, sample data and site.
