Description DATA COLLECTION: This data were collected in beginning of August 2011 in Kilpisjärvi, NW Finland (69.055⁰N, 20.887⁰E). Data comes from full-factorial warming-fertilization-herbivore exclusion experiment, where transplants of three forbs were grown for two growing seasons. For detailed methods see Kaarlejärvi et al. 2013, Funct Ecol. The file contains total biomass estimates of the three transplant species, reproductive biomass for two of the species and estimates of total vascular plant biomass on the study plots using point-intercept method. DATA FORMAT: Year: sampling year, PlotID: Individual identification code for each of 56 study plots (7 replicates of each of 8 treatment combinations), Exclosure: “grazed” indicates plots without exclosure, “ungrazed” refers to plots with exclosures against mammalian herbivores, Fertilization: Self-explanatory, whether a plot was fertilized or not using NPK-fertilizer, Warming: Self-explanatory, whether a plot was warmed or not using Open Top Chamber, bmEpiang: Biomass of transplanted Epilobium angustifolium after two growing seasons (expressed in grams), bmSildio: Biomass of transplanted Silene dioica after the second growing season (expressed in grams), bmSolvir: Biomass of transplanted Solidago virgaurea after the second growing season (expressed in grams), bmSildioF: Reproductive biomass of transplanted Silene dioica after the second growing season (expressed in grams), bmSolvirF: Reproductive biomass of transplanted Solidago virgaurea after the second growing season (expressed in grams), VascularTotalHits: Total number of vascular plant hits per 108 pins systematically spread over 25 x 50 cm2 area in the middle of each study plot.
