Seedlings growth in a fertilized forest in Central Amazonia (2019 – 2020)

Data are presented showing seedling height, diameter at ground height (DGH), total number of leaves, number of leaves with herbivory damage and leaf mortality, from a plot based fertilisation experiment. The experiment was carried out at the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project (BDFFP) approximately 100 km north of Manaus. Data were collected bimonthlyfrom February 2019 to January 2020, by the dataset first author. Height measurements were made with a tape measure and DRH measurements were made with digital calipers. Leaf numbers, damage and mortality were made from visual observations. The data were collected to investigate the possible effects of different fertiliser applications on seedling height, totalnumber of leaves, number of leaves with herbivory damage and leaf mortality.The work was carried out as part of the Amazon Fertilization Experiment (AFEX), funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC), Award reference NE/L007223/1, by the Brazilian government (Researcher scholarship) and the Biological Dynamics of Forest Fragments Project (BDFFP - logistical support and camps maintanance).

Provenance & quality

Within each sub-plot, all plant individuals greater than 20 centimetres in height and with diameter at ground height (DGH) greater than 1 centimetre were identified and tagged. Seedling height was measured from ground level to the highest apical yolk with measuring tapes and DGH was measured with digital calipers. Total leaves number and total of leaves with herbivory damage was accounted for each tagged seedling. Data were collected bimonthly, during a period of 12 months, totaling six replications in each sub-plot, four in the rainy season and two in the dry season. Data were recorded on to field sheets. These data were then transferred to an Excel spreadsheet. Data were exported as a comma separated file for ingestion into the EIDC.
