Microclimatic conditions and water content fluctuations experienced by epiphytic bryophytes in an Amazonian rain forest

Nina Löbs et al.

Data sets

Available data for the microclimate of epiphytic bryophytes investigated at ATTO N. Löbs, B. Weber, and C. Pöhlker

Short summary
Cryptogamic organisms, such as bryophytes, lichens, and algae, cover major parts of vegetation in the Amazonian rain forest, but their relevance in biosphere–atmosphere exchange, climate processes, and nutrient cycling is largely unknown. Over the duration of 2 years we measured their water content, temperature, and light conditions to get better insights into their physiological activity patterns and thus their potential impact on local, regional, and even global biogeochemical processes.
