Global Distribution of Fine Root Biomass in Terrestrial Ecosystems

R.B. JACKSON, H.A. MOONEY & E.-D. SCHULZE
A global data set of root biomass, rooting profiles, and concentrations nutrients in roots was compiled from the primary literature and used to study distributions of root properties. This data set consists of estimates of fine root biomass and specific area, site characteristics, and source references associated with two papers (Jackson et al. 1996 and 1997).Understanding and predicting ecosystem functioning (e.g., carbon and water fluxes) and the role of soils in carbon storage requires an...
