Abstract

The ABACUS (Arctic Biosphere-Atmosphere Coupling at multiple Scales) research project is a major, linked programme of plant and soil studies, atmospheric measurements, aircraft and satellite observations, and modelling, to improve our understanding of the response of the arctic terrestrial biosphere to climate change. The data collected as part of the ABACUS Work Package 1 (Studies on plant allocation and phenology, and respiration-production ratios for major community types (via harvests, root measurement and isotope tracer experiments) includes root measurements and isotope ratios of plants as follows:

- Fine Root Length, Abisko (Sweden), 15 Jul 2007 - 08 Aug 2007
