Stocking rates for cattle, horses, and sheep are provided for the Jornada Experimental Range beginning in 1916. Goats were few and are included as part of the sheep category and not differentiated.
Data are pre-dawn water potential for leaves collected from plants subjected to five possible precipitation treatments: -80%, -50%, control (0), +50%, +80%.
Data are photosynthetic rates (Amax) for leaves collected from plants subjected to five possible precipitation treatments: -80%, -50%, control (0), +50%, +80%.
We use vegetation cover as a proxy for plant biomass to avoid confounding spatial and temporal variability or confounding the impact of harvesting.
The objective of this long-term project is to measure the precipitation across the entire Jornada Experimental Range. This is achieved by using a network of standard-can rain gauges to continually collect the precipitation as it occurs.
In 1933 and 1935, two transects were established in the Natural Revegetation Exclosure and Pasture 8b, respectively, to measure long-term soil movement in areas undergoing mesquite invasion.
Line intercept data of long-term vegetation responses to shrub removal and lagomorph exclusion in a creosotebush community
The purpose of this study is to quantify vegetation dynamics in response to lagomorph and shrub exclusion. Data consist of vertical line intercept measures of the perennial grasses, suffretescents and shrubs.
Collections of airborne sand are obtained at the 15 NPP sites and the Geomet site. The collections are taken using BSNE collectors. The collectors are turned into the wind with wind vanes.
