Title Plant data 2011
Description Aboveground plant biomass data for wet meadows in 2011 that has been scaled up to g/m2. Separated by grass, forbs, rush, iris, and woody vegetation. Graminoid scaled up is rush and grass data added together. Data was collected in the field.

Title Plant Biomass 2012
Description Aboveground plant biomass for upland grasslands in 2012 that shows original data and data that has been scaled up to g/m2. Separated by grass, forbs, rush, sedge, iris, and woody vegetation. Graminoid scaled up is rush, sedge, and grass data added together. Grass columns include both live and dead vegetation, while alive grass columns include only live vegetation that was determined via visual estimates when spread out over white paper. Data was collected in the field.

Title 2012 arthropod biomass
Description 2012 individual and total arthropod biomass (mg) for top 6 abundant orders WITHOUT ZEROS. Length and counts for arthropods were done in the lab and then standardized equations were applied to obtain weights.
