Abstract

Dry weights of leaf litter collected during the Fall of 2015 from 54 macroplot locations (2 samples from each site, which were then averaged) across Shale Hills and Garner Run.This data was collected in an effort to determine leaf senescence phenological differences across slope position, slope aspect, and lithology type.

● Leaf litter traps were set up at macroplot sites, 2 at each location

● During the Fall, leaves were collected on a weekly, then bi-weekly basis

● Leaves were dried in a drying oven for 48 hours after collection but before measurement

● Sample mass was then measured on a scale and recorded, then converted to mass per unit area

● The average of 2 samples from each location was then determined
