Data Notes

At BMC Research Notes, we recognise that valuable data often go unpublished when instead they could be helping to progress science. This is why we launched data notes: a short article type allowing researchers to describe their data, sharing them with the research community and receiving credit for all their work - not just a finished article.

We present here all the data notes published in the journal, a free and open resource for the scientific community. Why not join them and free your data too?

Featured data: Effects of fertilization on tree legumes during tropical forest restoration

Tree legume species play an important role in forest restoration in the tropics. Understanding how different species adjust carbohydrate allocation and growth under distinct nutrient availability will enhance the success of restoring degraded areas.
Here, Jaquetti & Gonçalves present data on the effects of fertilization on growth rates, biomass allocation, carbohydrates and nutrients of nitrogen-fixing and non-nitrogen-fixing tree legumes.
