A Global Data Set of Leaf Photosynthetic Rates, Leaf N and P, and Specific Leaf Area
Entry ID: LEAF_PHOTOSYNTHESIS_TRAITS_1224_1


Summary
Abstract: This global data set of photosynthetic rates and leaf nutrient traits was compiled from a comprehensive literature review. It includes estimates of Vcmax (maximum rate of carboxylation), Jmax (maximum rate of electron transport), leaf nitrogen content (N), leaf phosphorus content (P), and specific leaf area (SLA) data from both experimental and ambient field conditions, for a total of 325 species ...
