The database houses North American Carbon Program data from 10 intensively monitored sites at seven stations: Bartlett Experimental Forest (New Hampshire), Fraser Experimental Forest (Colorado), Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site (Wyoming), Marcell Experimental Forest (Minnesota), Niwot Ridge Long-term Ecological Research Site (Colorado), Silas Little Experimental Forest (New Jersey), and The Parker Tract (North Carolina). The biometric database contains both measured and estimated data. Measured data include general descriptive information and detailed measurements from 2004-2011. General descriptive information defines the sample area at the station, site, plot, and subplot level. Detailed measurements include tree, shrub, non-woody vegetation, down woody material, stump, litter, forest floor, agricultural crop, leaf area index, fine root, and soils data. Tree data were separated into three size classes: seedling, sapling, and tree. Soil data include chemistry, respiration, and water content.
