Title: SUMO Nitrogen Labeling Experiment and Soil Biogeochemistry

Abstract

The Los Alamos Survival–Mortality experiment (SUMO) is located on Frijoles Mesa near Los Alamos, New Mexico, USA, at an elevation of 2150 m. This was a tree manipulation study that investigated the relative impacts of drought and warming on plant function and reveals how trees adapt to drought and heat in semi-arid regions. The study factored the role of tree hydraulic acclimation to both precipitation and temperature and separated their effects.The experiment is located in a pinon-juniper woodland near the ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa) forest ecotone. In a semi-arid woodland, adult trees (piñon and juniper) were exposed to chronic warming (+4 °C) and precipitation reduction (-45 %). After five years of continuous treatment exposure, soil and plant nitrogen isotopic composition were measured to assess plant nitrogen allocation. See SUMO Target Tree Information data package (doi:10.15485/1440544) for additional information. Data released by Los Alamos National Lab for public use under LA-UR-18-23656.
