The dataset is originated, conceived, designed and maintained by Xiaoke WANG, Zhiyun OUYANG and Yunjian LUO. To develop the China's normalized tree biomass equation dataset, we carried out an extensive survey and critical review of the literature (from 1978 to 2013) on biomass equations conducted in China. It consists of 5924 biomass component equations for nearly 200 species (Equation sheet) and their associated background information (General sheet), showing sound geographical, climatic and forest vegetation coverages across China. The dataset is freely available for non-commercial scientific applications, provided it is appropriately cited.For further information, please read our article (Luo et al., submitted) in Earth System Science Data, or feel free to contact the authors.
