Patagonia_and_Global_datasets.xls

Two large-scale databases with contrasting geographic coverage (236 sites in Global drylands and 185 sites in Patagonia, Argentina) to evaluate the relative importance of abiotic (precipitation, temperature maxima, soil sand content) and biotic (NDVI as proxy of annual net primary productivity) factors as drivers of soil organic carbon concentration in drylands at global and regional scales.
