Dataset specification

  • Title: BioBasis Nuuk - Vegetation - Eriophorum total count
  • Description: For Eriophorum angustifoliumfour observation plots were established in order to cover the ecological amplitude of the species with respect to duration of snow cover, difference in soil moisture at the site and altitude. Total flowering is counted once per year, at peak flowering. For further details, please refer to the newest BioBasis manual available at the website. Vegetation:Vegetation BioBasis Nuuk:The BioBasis programme monitors the dynamics of organisms and biological processes in the terrestrial and limnic ecosystems at Zackenberg and Nuuk. The BioBasis programme plays a central role in the development and implementation of the Circumpolar Biodiversity Monitoring Programme (CBMP) across the Arctic.
