Summary

This data set consists of monthly averages of soil and litter properties. Rows are grouped in the following order: year, month, vegetation type, plot ID. Within a single month five plots were sampled within each of the 2 vegetation types (10 plots total). Columns F+ represent individual measurements.

Purpose

The data were collected to examine the effects of flooding on soil properties and N cycling at a floodplain site with two different plant communities: mature native forest (Acer saccharinum) and patches of an invasive grass (Phalaris arundinacea) in the Upper Mississippi River. Plots were established within each vegetation type along an elevation gradient and sampled throughout the summers of 2013 and 2014.
