Seasonal redistribution experiment

Project Details

NOTE:  Shelter dimensions are actually 6.5 x 5.5 x 2.2.

Winter and summer precipitation were manipulated for 2 years with winter subplots (3 x 2 m) nested in summer plots (6.5 x 5.5 m).  

Snow was shoveled from one subplot (-100% snow) to another subplot (+100 snow).  Shelters removed 50% of throughfall in the forest from dry plots.  Wet plots received +50% of precipitation in a month (manually watered approximately every 2 weeks).
