Dataset Information

Site ID: PR-CAM; PR-CAR; PR-FLM; PR-SB2; PR-UPR

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 mass area

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

Description: This data package contains measurements of leaf mass per area (LMA) and fresh-leaf water content collected from 54 tropical tree species across five sites in Puerto Rico. Data includes leaves collected from fully sunlit and shaded canopy strata as well as leaves for young, mature, old, and senescent leaf ages. Data for each sample includes the relative age estimate, leaf canopy position, and sample number. Included in the attached zip file are two Excel files with metadata (E-Field_Log_2017_BNL_PuertoRico.xlsx and File_Submission_Metadata_2017_PR_LMA.xlsx) and two data files (NGEE-Tropics_Puerto_Rico_March2017_LMA.xlsx and NGEE-Tropics_Puerto_Rico_March2017_Leaf_Sample_Detail.xlsx). This data was collected as part of the 2017 NGEE-Tropics / NASA G-LiHT airborne campaign. See related datasets for sample details including photographs, leaf-level optical properties (i.e. reflectance and transmittance) and leaf carbon and nitrogen.
