Summary

These plant and soil data were collected by Timothy M. Wertin and Sasha C. Reed in the spring, summer, and fall of 2011 at a climate manipulation experiment site near Moab, UT (38.521411, -109.470567). These data were collected to assess how warming affects leaf photosynthesis, soil CO 2 efflux, and soil chemistry in plots of ambient and warming treatments.

Purpose

The purpose of these data are to document how experimental warming effects plant photosynthesis and adjacent soil CO2 efflux for the common C3 bunchgrass Achnatherum hymenoides. Other important factors, such as site climate, soil temperature and moisture, aboveground Achnatherum hymenoides biomass, foliar temperatures, and soil carbon and nitrogen concentrations were simultaneously assessed. Common ecophysiological and biogeochemical techniques were used to test the effect of experimental warming across the growing season and in diurnal patterns.
