Seed and ring width data from 'Climate drivers of seed production in Picea engelmannii and response to warming temperatures in the southern Rocky Mountains'

Datasets Posted on: June 08, 2016
Seed production by Picea engelmannii was monitored at 13 plots distributed across an approximately 670 meter elevation gradient in the Fraser Experimental Forest near Fraser, Colorado. Seeds were collected annually between 1970 and 2010 from ten wire mesh seed traps located in each of the 13 plots. Annual plot level estimates of seed abundance were derived from an average value of the 10 traps.
