Summary

This dataset is the largest global dataset to date of soil respiration, moisture, and temperature measurements, totaling >3800 observations representing 27 temperature manipulation studies, spanning nine biomes and nearly two decades of warming experiments. Data for this study were obtained from a combination of unpublished data and published literature values. We find that although warming increases soil respiration rates, there is limited evidence for a shifting respiration response with experimental warming. We also note a universal decline in the temperature sensitivity of respiration at soil temperatures >25°C. This dataset includes 3817 observations, from control (n=1812), first (i.e., lowest or sole) level warming (n=1812), [...]

Purpose

The data included in this dataset were collected at 27 individual warming studies for the purpose of determining how future climatic warming will alter soil respiration rates, among other response variables not reported in this dataset. This dataset was generated with the purpose of synthesizing the results of these individual studies to better understand how soil respiration will respond to future climatic warming at the biome scale and at high temporal frequencies.
