Phenology of tundra plant species at eight monitoring plots (2016-2017) on Qikiqtaruk-Herschel Island, Yukon, Canada
GB/NERC/BAS/PDC/01089

Summary

Abstract:
This dataset contains phenological records (timing of life events such as the opening of flowers) for tundra plant species from eight 2x2m monitoring plots. Plots are from two distinct vegetation communities (Herschel, Komakuk, coded in the data as HER and KOM). Plots were established in 2016 and monitored in 2016 and 2017. Data are presented as phenological stages for each monitored plant individual at survey dates across the 2016 and 2017 growing seasons. Flower stalk length, leaf length and new growth length were measured in mm. Active layer depth was measured in cm and was recorded at the corner of each 2x2 m plot. Soil moisture was measured as a percentage.

Funding was provided by the NERC grant NE/M016323/1.
