Physical and chemical properties of the foliage of 10 live wildland fuels

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data package contains data from over 3000 individual fuel elements collected as part of Joint Fire Science Program (JFSP) project 11-1-4-19 "Determination of the effects of heating mechanisms and moisture content on ignition of live fuels." Data were collected each month during one of two one-year periods.

Flower phenology and climate data for Artemisia tridentata populations

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data publication contains 2012 flowering data for the 52 populations of big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) grown in 3 garden locations: Majors Flat and Ephraim in Idaho, as well as Orchard, Idaho. Data include geographical details, subspecies, julian date of flowering, and population climate variable information.

Growth and survival before and after a mountain pine beetle outbreak in a ponderosa pine genetic trial

Datasets Posted on: March 15, 2018
This data package contains data used for the publication "An insect outbreak shifts the direction of selection from fast to slow growth rates in the long-lived conifer Pinus ponderosa" (de la Mata et al. 2017). The study includes measurements from 204 half-sibling families planted in a common garden experiment planted in 1974 and last measured in 2013.

Data product for "Effects of water and nitrogen availability on nitrogen contribution by the legume, Lupinus argenteus Pursh"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
We conducted a greenhouse experiment to examine the separate and interacting effects of water and nitrogen (N) availability on biomass production, tissue N concentration, nodulation, nodule activity, and rhizodeposition of Lupinus argenteus (Pursh), a legume native to sagebrush steppe. Plants were grown in a replicated, randomized block design with three levels of water and four levels of N.

Data product for "Influence of a native legume on soil N and plant response following prescribed fire in sagebrush steppe"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
We examined the effects of prescribed fire and legume presence in Underdown Canyon located in the central Great Basin, Nevada, USA. We examined three treatments - one year post-burn, three years post-burn and unburned control in three replicate blocks. Within each treatment we measured density, biomass, cover, and nutrient content of a native legume, Lupinus argenteus (Pursh).

Data product for "Nitrogen level and legume presence affect competitive interactions between a native and invasive grass"

Datasets Posted on: August 27, 2015
We conducted a greenhouse experiment to investigate effects of the native N2-fixing legume, L. argenteus, on competitive interactions between seedlings of the non-native annual grass, B.tectorum, and a native perennial grass, E. multisetus, over a gradient of nitrogen (N) availability.
