Ecotypes Disturbance experiments
Title Abstract
Effects of 2015 experimental burn on Eriophorum vaginatum at Toolik Lake Field Station, Alaska 2016
This was an experimental burn conducted in the summer of 2015 to provide sites for an experiment to see whether seeds of Eriophorum vaginatum from different ecotypes could establish in recently burned areas.  It consisted of ten 2 meter X 2 meter plots along with a similar number of control plots. There was little seedling establishment but other data have been collected on the plots.
Effects of shading on tundra vegetation senescence at Toolik Lake, Coldfoot, Sagwon - Alaska 2016
Data on the effects of shading tundra vegetation from the sun when it is low in on the horizon in the north. If light quality was altered through shading, phenology might be affected. Senescence (color change) was measured for the common tundra species.
Ecotypes Transplant Garden
Title Abstract
Eriophorum vaginatum leaf length 2015-2017 from 2014 common gardens established at Toolik Lake, Coldfoot, and Sagwon - Alaska
Data on Eriophorum vaginatum leaf length collected from common gardens established at Toolik Lake, Coldfoot, and Sagwon in 2014 with tussocks from  Coldfoot, Toolik Lake, and Sagwon. Data collected during the growing seasons of 2015, 2016, and 2017
Quantum yield of Photosystem II of Eriophorum vaginatum leaves in the reciprocal transplant gardens at Toolik Lake, Coldfoot, and Sagwon- Alaska in 2016
Quantum yield of Photosystem II  estimated from chlorophyll fluorescence of Eriophorum vaginatum leaves from tussocks in the reciprocal transplant gardons at Toolik Lake, Coldfoot, and Sagwon in 2016. A single transplant tussock per plot was repeatedly measured through the season.
Toolik Lake 2011 common garden leaf length phenology 2015-2016 Alaska
Data on Eriophorum vaginatum leaf length collected from a common garden established at Toolik Lake in 2011 with tussocks from No Name Creek, Coldfoot, Eagle Creek, Toolik Lake, Sagwon, and Prudhoe Bay. Data collected during the growing seasons of 2015 and 2016. Results published in Parker, T. C., J. Tang, M. B. Clark, M. M. Moody, and N. Fetcher. 2017. Ecotypic differences in the phenology of the tundra species Eriophorum vaginatum reflect sites of origin. Ecology and Evolution 7: 9775-9786... more
Litter decomposition from 2014 reciprocal transplant garden Toolik Lake, Coldfoot, and Sagwon, Alaska 2016
Data on litter decomposition of Eriophorum vaginatum leaves collected at Toolik Lake, Coldfoot, and Sagwon and distributed to all three sites. Litter bags from the three populations were deployed at CF (8/26/15), TL (8/24/16) and SG (8/25/16) sites approximately 40 meter away from the main transplant gardens (east of CF, east of TL and west of SG) into 5 blocks with 4 intended harvests at each plots.
Somatal length and density in 2010 for the 1980-82 Eriophorum vaginatum reciprocal transplant experiment
These data were collected in July 2010 for tussocks transplanted in 1980-82 in a reciprocal transplant experiment and harvested in 2011. Important variables are garden name, source population, length and density of stomata, and the temperature of tussocks.
Light-saturated photosynthetic rate, dark respiration, stomatal conductance and ratio of internal to external carbon dioxide concentration from the 1980-82 Eriophorum vaginatum reciprocal transplant plots from Eagle Creek to Prudhoe Bay, Alaska, 2010
In 1980-1982, six transplant gardens were established along a latitudinal gradient in interior Alaska from Eagle Creek, AK, in the south to Prudhoe Bay, AK, in the north (Shaver et al. 1986) .Three sites, Toolik Lake (TL), Sagwon (SAG), and Prudhoe Bay (PB) are north of the continental divide and the remaining three, Eagle Creek (EC), No Name Creek (NN), and Coldfoot (CF), are south of the continental divide. Each garden consisted of 10 individual tussocks transplanted back to their home-... more
Terrestrial Plant Phenological and Growth Data
Title Abstract
Leave growth of Eriophorum angustifolium and Carex rotundata was measured in a long-term experimental wet sedge tundra site, Arctic LTER 1996, Toolik Lake, AK.
Leave growth of Eriophorum angustifolium and Carex rotundata was measured in a long-term experimental wet sedge tundra site near Toolik Lake, AK. Experimental treatments at each site included factorial NxP, greenhouse and shadehouse and were begun in 1989 (Toolik sites).
Seasonal patterns of leaf exsertion, elongation and senescence for Eriophorum vaginatum and Carex bigelowii was measured in mesic tussock tundra sites 1985 to 1986, near Toolik Lake, AK.
Seasonal patterns of leaf exsertion, elongation and senescence for Eriophorum vaginatum and Carex bigelowii was measured in mesic tussock tundra sites near Toolik Lake, AK. In addition, the response of both species to NP fertilizer and to variation in site fertility (after track versus non-track areas) were also assayed and compared. The research was done over two full growing seasons.
Terrestrial Soil Microfuna and Microflora
Title Abstract
Plant litter, soil, plants and fungal fruiting bodies 15N, 13C, percent C and N along Dalton Highway, Alaska 2004, 1990, 2007.
The data set includes 15N and 13C for plant litter, soil, plants and fungal fruiting bodies (mycorrhizae), percent C (soil organic matter and percent N from samples collected in three separate trips (1990, 2004, 2007) along the transect of the Dalton Highway (AK) extending from the Yukon River on the south to Prudhoe Bay on the north.
Terrestrial Trace Gases
Title Abstract
Leaf area, biomass, carbon and nitrogen content by species for harvests taken as part of the ITEX flux survey.
Leaf area, biomass, foliar carbon and nitrogen by species for destructive vegetation harvests. Plots were located in the Toolik Lake LTER fertilization experiment in Alaska; at Imnavait Creek, Alaska; at Paddus, Latnjajaure and the Stepps site near Abisko in northern Sweden; and at various sites in Adventdalen, Svalbard, in Zackenberg valley, Northeast Greenland, and at BEO near Barrow, Alaska. Harvests were taken during the growing seasons 2003 to 2009.
