Title: SPRUCE Manual Minirhizotron Images from Experimental Plots Beginning in 2013

Abstract

This data set consists of images of fine-root birth, growth, and death collected using non-destructive minirhizotron technology from a warming × CO2 enrichment experiment in a forested, ombrotrophic bog. Minirhizotron images were collected ~ weekly or bi-weekly beginning in 2013 in the 12 SPRUCE experimental plots in paired hummock and hollow microtopography. The dominant woody species in the bog, and the focus of our investigation, were trees Picea mariana and Larix laricina, and ericaceous shrubs Rhododendron groenlandicum and Chamaedaphne calyculata. In each of the 12 experimental plots, one pair of tubes was installed within a 1.5 m radius of spruce or larch trees and one pair was installed in areas dominated by ericaceous shrubs, for a total of 48 tubes.
