Project Overview

Regional assessments of forest health and productivity require a strong, region-wide understanding of ranges in chemical nutrient concentrations in the foliage of the region’s forest tree species. NSRC researchers requested foliar chemistry data from 122 scientists. They created a database of data from 25 research projects located in approximately 13 states in the northeastern United States. The database now contains foliar chemistry data from 10,000 trees. Currently, there are 294 registered users of the online database. The database is a searchable resource that provides foliar chemistry data for most eastern forest tree species. In addition, the website provides cumulative frequency distributions of the foliar chemistry for each tree species and chemical element represented in the database. Data can be submitted to the database by registering on the website.
