Title: SPRUCE: Sphagnum Carbon, Nitrogen and Phosphorus Concentrations in the SPRUCE Experimental Plots

Abstract

This data set reports the concentrations of carbon (C), nitrogen (N), and phosphorus (P) in capitula, current year stems, and one-year old stem tissue of Sphagnum from 2016-2018. Measurements are continuing and new data will be appended as they become available. Three types of Sphagnum were sampled -- S. angustifolium/fallax from hummocks (AngFal_Hum), S. angustifolium/fallax from hollows (AngFal_Hol), and S. magellanicum from hummocks (Mag_Hum) from SPRUCE experimental study plots. Measurements were made in 10 enclosures comprising five levels of temperature elevation in ambient CO2 and five levels in elevated CO2. Measurements also were made in two ambient (no enclosure) plots. Nutrient concentrations were analyzed in conjunction with assessment of Sphagnum growth, which was measured in 3.79-cm diameter mesh columns collected every October and are described in the related dataset (https://doi.org/10.25581/spruce.049/1426474). The SPRUCE experiment is being conducted at the 8.1-ha S1 bog forest site in northern Minnesota, 40 km north of Grand Rapids, in the USDA Forest Service Marcell Experimental Forest (MEF).
