Plant phenological and growth data. Leaf growth and phenology data from experimental plots near Toolik Lake and the long term data set of flowering abundance and nutrient content of Eriophorum vaginatum. The flowering abundance data are from observations at 34 sites, spanning 5.5 degrees latitude and 1050 m elevation in northern and central Alaska; collected since 1979 and annually since 1989.
