Plant phenology, growth, freezing damage, and carbon gain data observed from 2017 to 2018 on wood plants growing at Bagley Nature Area in Duluth, MN



These data were collected for a project comparing the leaf phenology, carbon gain, growth, and freezing susceptibility of four invasive and four native species. Leaf phenology and stem growth were observed for ten individuals per understory wood shrubs species. Freezing damage was experimentally assessed for each species and minimum temperatures in the species' native and exotic ranges were determined. Carbon gain was modeled for six individuals per species based on photosynthetic light response curves, leaf phenology, and understory light.
