  • The dataset contains information of Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) of 8,729 trees. These trees are distributed in 29 RAINFOR network forest plots across the Brazilian Amazon, comprising the states of Acre, Mato Grosso and Pará. All the plot censuses are located in terra-firme non-flooded lowland forests. The measurements were collected between 2017 and 2019. The Amazon Forest Inventory Network is a long-term, international collaboration to understand the dynamics of Amazon ecosystems. Since 2000 they have developed a framework for systematic monitoring of forests from the ground-up, centred on plots that track the fate of trees and species, and includes soil and plant biogeochemical records, as well as intensive monitoring of carbon cycle processes at some sites. RAINFOR works with partners across the nations of Amazonia to support and sustain forest monitoring and help develop new generations of Amazon ecologists. The work of RAINFOR is currently supported by funding agencies in Brazil, the UK, and the EU.

  • This dataset contains radiocarbon dating of pieces of macrocharcoal (~ ≥ 1 mm) collected from soil in Guyana, Peru and Brazil in plots located in the Amazon forest. All the sites are terra-firme, non-seasonally flooded and are part of the RAINFOR network. In total, 60 pieces of macrocharcoal were dated.

  • [This dataset is embargoed until May 1, 2025]. This dataset contains measurements of soil pyrogenic carbon, ratio of %PyC to %Bulk Carbon and organic carbon, which were collected in a soil fertility gradient in the Amazon Basin. All samples were taken in old-growth forests. In total, 49 forest plots were sampled and analysed for PyC soil concentration, representing 395 soil samples.
