Data from: Effects of conifer treatments on soil nutrient availability and plant composition in sagebrush steppe

Conifer control in sagebrush steppe of the western United States causes various levels of site disturbance influencing vegetation recovery and resource availability. The data set presented in this article include growing season availability of soil micronutrients and levels of total soil carbon, organic matter, and N spanning a six year period following western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis spp. occidentalis) reduction by mechanical cutting and prescribed fire of western juniper woodlands in southeast Oregon. These data can be useful to further evaluate the impacts of conifer woodland reduction to soil resources in sagebrush steppe plant communities.

Intended Use
These data can be useful to evaluate the impacts of conifer woodland reduction to soil resources in sagebrush steppe plant communities. This is a unique and long-term dataset of soil nutrient availability, soil carbon (SC), soil organic matter (SOM), and total nitrogen (TSN) after various juniper reduction treatments, which are lacking in the literature. The dataset would be useful to researchers comparing short versus longer-term micro-nutrient availabilities following mechanical and prescribed fire disturbance in sagebrush steppe plant communities invaded by conifers. The data can be used for multivariate analysis for evaluating nutrient availabilities and vegetation composition at spatial and temporal scales.
