Title: AmeriFlux AmeriFlux MX-Tes Tesopaco, secondary tropical dry forest

Abstract

This is the AmeriFlux version of the carbon flux data for the site MX-Tes Tesopaco, secondary tropical dry forest. Site Description - This tower was located in the "Ejido la Estrella" where the eddy covariance tower is located 7.5 km east of the town Rosario de Tesopaco, in southeastern Sonora, Mexico. The tower was positioned in the center of a homogeneous flat terrain at the foothills of the Madre Occidental. This ecosystem lies in a highly seasonal region under the influence of the North American Monsoon that brings about 70% of the rains from July to September. The site is dominated by leguminous trees. Some of the dominant species are Lysiloma divaricatum, Ipomoea arborescens, Acacia cochliacantha, Haematoxylum brasiletto, and Celtis reticulata. The mean basal area at the study site is 14.83 ± 3.3m2 ha-1, and the aboveground biomass is estimated to be 43.20±9.5Mgha-1. These values and the high counts of Acacia cochliacantha indicate that the area is a secondary forest with significant management activities in the past.
