The relationship between standing crop in sedge meadows and summer temperature

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The standing crops of sedge meadows in northern and middle latitudes are shown to be strongly correlated with summer temperatures. Above-ground dry biomass in late summer ranges from about 200 g/m2 in sub-arctic and montane sites to almost 1500 g/m2 in a lowland mid-latitude site.
