A Global Database of Field-observed Leaf Area Index in Woody Plant Species, 1932-2011
Entry ID: LAI_WOODY_PLANTS_1231_1


Summary
Abstract: This data set provides global leaf area index (LAI) values for woody species. The data are a compilation of field-observed data from 1,216 locations obtained from 554 literature sources published between 1932 and 2011. Only site-specific maximum LAI values were included from the sources; values affected by significant artificial treatments (e.g. continuous fertilization and/or irrigation) and LAI ...
