A dataset of leaf inclination angles for temperate and boreal broadleaf woody species

Knowledge about leaf inclination angle distribution is essential for determining the radiation transmission within vegetation canopies and to indirectly quantify canopy attributes such as leaf area index and G-function. For this purpose, we measured and compiled an

Meteorological data series from Swiss long-term forest ecosystem research plots since 1997

This paper describes meteorological measurements collected since 1997 at 16 ICP Forests Level II sites across the complex topography of Switzerland, both under the canopy and in the open-field nearby. The data offer detailed comparisons of deciduous,

A spatio-temporal dataset of forest mensuration for the analysis of tree species structure and diversity in semi-natural mixed floodplain forests

We performed replicated, repeated measures of height, diameter and vitality at tree level to allow analysis of spatial and temporal structure and diversity in a semi-natural-mixed floodplain forest in Italy. Three inventories were performed in 1995, 2005

A long-term tree-ring chronology over 796 years for silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) in Southern France

This paper presents ring width data of silver fir trees (Abies alba Mill.) from buildings and living trees from 1214 to 2009 in southeastern France. A 796-year chronology spanning the period 1214–2009 has been built. Data can

A SPATIAL DATASET OF FOREST MENSURATION COLLECTED IN BLACK PINE PLANTATIONS IN CENTRAL ITALY

The dataset provides an exhaustive tree inventory with forest mensuration and spatial location carried out in 54 plots sampled in 45- to 55-year-old black pine plantations, located in two areas of Tuscany (central Italy). Forest mensuration includes
