  • [This dataset is embargoed until December 30, 2021]. The dataset contains the weight of fine root (<2 mm) at two soil depths (0-10 cm and 10-30 cm) collected in a field site approximately 80 km north of Manaus, in the state of Amazonas, Brasil. Data were obtained by the in growth core method, in campaigns conducted every three months from 2017 to 2019 in all plots.

  • [This dataset is embargoed until August 31, 2021]. The data consists of leaf traits and nutrients from litterfall in a fertilised old-growth forest in the Central Amazon. Data was collected in a full factorial nutrient addition experiment (nitrogen, phosphorus, and cation treatments). The dataset includes realized leaf area, and Leaf Mass Area (LMA). The field work was completed in August of 2017, 2018 and 2019. The study was funded by NERC, BDFFP (logistical support), and the Brazilian government (students scholarship).

  • The dataset contains the Diameter at Breast Height (DBH) of trees > 10 cm along with botanical identification (family and species). Data were obtained via forest inventories, in annual campaigns (from 2017 to 2019) conducted in May, with exception of the first campaign, which was from June to November, due to the species identification activity. The research was conducted in a field site approximately 80 km north of Manaus, in the state of Amazonas, Brasil. The dendrometer dataset contains the distance in circumference (mm) from a window on the dendrometer band installed in the tree and measured with a digital caliper, where that distance changes when the trunk grows. Dendrometric bands data were collected from April 2018 to January 2020. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/c2587e20-ba4a-4444-8ce9-ccdec15b0aa3

  • [This dataset is embargoed until October 24, 2021]. The dataset contains stem respiration (ppm) of 320 trees with DBH (Diameter at breast height) > 26 cm, measured with the EGM-4 (Environmental Gas Monitor for CO2). Data were collected on October 2019. In relation to the soil respiration dataset, it contains soil respiration (µmol CO2m-2 s-1) of different type of collars placed on the forest floor, and measured with the LI – 8100 A soil respiration system. Data were collected from June 2017 to October 2019. In both activities, leak tests were done before collections. All research was conducted in a field site approximately 80 km north of Manaus, in the state of Amazonas, Brasil.

  • The dataset contains the leaf area index (LAI) (m2/ m2 ) collected with the LAI-2200 C (plant canopy analyzer), that was computed with 5, 4 and 3 rings using the FV2200 software. Additionally, it has the x and y coordinates (m) of the points collected inside the plots and the time of collection (hour: min: sec). This research was collected in a field site approximately 80 km north of Manaus, in the state of Amazonas, Brasil. The campaigns were carried out in October 2017, March 2018, August 2018 and October 2018. Full details about this dataset can be found at https://doi.org/10.5285/6e70665f-b558-4949-b42a-49fbaec7e7cc

  • The data consists of carbon, micro and macro nutrient concentrations in fine roots (<2mm diameter) in old growth forests in Central Amazon. Fine roots younger than three months were sampled using the ingrowth core technique in a large-scale nutrient fertilisation experiment. Carbon and nutrient concentrations refer to year one of fertilisation, bulking samples from November 2017 to August 2018. Concentrations are given as a mean of the community per plot in year 1, where five points inside each plot were sampled in the 0-10 cm and 10-30 cm soil layers. The dataset depicts the concentrations of iron, zinc, manganese, calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorus, nitrogen and carbon in fine roots in two different soil depths. Samples were collected at the AFEX project area in Manaus, Brazil at the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project (BDFFP/ INPA). The study was funded by NERC, BDFFP (logistical support) and Brazilian government (student scholarship).

  • The data consists of morphological properties of fine roots in old growth forests in Central Amazon. Fine roots younger than three months were sampled using the ingrowth core technique in a large-scale nutrient fertilisation experiment. Morphological properties are given as a mean of the plant community per plot, where five points inside each plot were sampled and separated in two different soil layers (0-10 and 10-30cm). Samples were collected in February 2018, eight months after the nutrient fertilisation started at the AFEX project area in Manaus, Brazil at the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project (BDFFP/ INPA). The study was funded by NERC, BDFFP (logistical support) and Brazilian government (student scholarship).

  • The data consists of total arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi colonisation in fine roots in old growth forests in Central Amazon. Fine roots younger than three months were sampled using the ingrowth core technique in a large-scale nutrient fertilisation experiment. Total mycorrhizal colonisation is given as a mean of the plant community per plot, where five points inside each plot were sampled in the 0-10 cm soil layer. The spreadsheet depicts the percentage of fine root length colonised by different arbuscular mycorrhizal structures (hyphae, arbuscules and vesicles). Samples were collected in February 2018, eight months after the nutrient fertilisation started at the AFEX project area in Manaus, Brazil at the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project (BDFFP/ INPA). The study was funded by NERC, BDFFP (logistical support) and Brazilian government (student scholarship).

  • The data consists of potential phosphatase activity released by fine roots in old growth forests in Central Amazon. Fine roots younger than three months were sampled using the ingrowth core technique in a large-scale nutrient fertilisation experiment.
