Title: Colorado Elevation Gradient Snowmelt Manipulation Plant Phenology 2017-2018

Abstract

This dataset includes observations of plant phenology at five locations along an elevation gradient in Crested Butte, Colorado. Observations occurred over the years 2017 and 2018. Observations taken in 2018 are associated with an experimental early snowmelt manipulation. The file PhenologyData_complete.txt contains raw data of phenology observations for each year, at each site, for each species within 1mX1m subplots. The file Phenology Data Package.docx contains information about sites, plots, and plant phenophases. These observations were taken to assess the temporal impact of early snowmelt perturbations on plant growth in the East River Valley. These data can be used to inform when and where plants may be using water resources throughout the season and how the phenology of plant communities in the watershed may respond to early snowmelt.
