Carbon stocks in Quebec's spruce feathermoss forest (Canada) This database contains the data set described in Andrieux B. et al. (in preparation) about carbon stocks in Quebec's spruce feathermoss forests. Carbon density in different reservoirs of the ecosystem is available at the plot scale (n = 72): living aboveground biomass, coarse woody debris, organic soil horizon, mineral soil (top 15 cm), mineral soil (15-35 cm) and illuvial (B) horizon (top 15 cm). Ancillary biophysical data includes geographic locations, topographic surveys, composition of the moss mat, time since fire, and soil properties (carbon content, bulk density, forest floor depth, pH, texture and amorphous metals). 2018-06-20 2018-06-27 Natural Resources Canada benjamin.andrieux@canada.ca Nature and EnvironmentBiomassBoreal ecosystemsTerrestrial ecosystemsSoil Carbon stocks in Quebec's spruce feathermoss forest (Canada) - MetadataTXT https://apps-scf-cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/opendata/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestData/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestMetadata-FRA.txt Carbon stocks in Quebec's spruce feathermoss forest (Canada) - MetadataTXT https://apps-scf-cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/opendata/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestData/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestMetadata-ENG.txt Plots' geographical locations and topographyCSV https://apps-scf-cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/opendata/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestData/Loc.csv Climatic dataCSV https://apps-scf-cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/opendata/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestData/CLIMAT.csv Carbon (C) stocks among the main ecosystem poolsCSV https://apps-scf-cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/opendata/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestData/Cstocks.csv Fire historyCSV https://apps-scf-cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/opendata/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestData/TSF.csv Physico-chemical soil parametersCSV https://apps-scf-cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/opendata/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestData/PHYCHI.csv Muscinal stratum compositionCSV https://apps-scf-cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/opendata/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestData/MOSSES.csv Soil parameters used to calculate carbon stocksCSV https://apps-scf-cfs.nrcan.gc.ca/opendata/CarbonStocksQuebecSpruceFeathermossForestData/Cvar.csv
