Summary

This dataset is from a precipitation manipulation experiment conducted at five grassland sites along an elevation gradient near Flagstaff, AZ. The data consist of pre- (1991 - 2015) and post-experimental (2016) treatment plant production and precipitation measurements. The plant production measurements were taken from satellite and hand-held spectroradiometer, in addition to plot-based harvests at the end of growing season.

Purpose

Data were collected to determine: 1) variation in production responses to precipitation among sites, 2) similarities or differences among spatial, temporal, and experimental precipitation-production relationships and how this advances our understanding of ecosystem dynamics.
