Abstract

These data sets document environmental characteristics of sampling locations of Schoenoplectus californicus, california bulrush, throughout its range in the Americas.

In addition, the data on nif gene in rhizomes and roots of Schoenoplectus are provided.

Methods

Soil samples from 52 locations of Schoenoplectus were collected as well as samples of plant tissue.

Nitrogen fixation was measured using the acetylene reduction method, ARA.

Copies of nifH gene were obtained using methods described in the publication
