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 (ChinAllomeTree version 1.0), we carried out an extensive survey and critical review of the literature (from 1978~2013) on biomass equations conducted in China. It consists of 5,924 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 definitions of variables in the dataset are summarized in an ongoing data paper. For further information, please feel free to contact the authors. The dataset is freely available for non-commercial scientific applications, provided it is appropriately cited.
