    <p>This data set provides the photosynthetic pathways for 2428 species recorded across 541 plots surveyed by Australia’s Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) between 2011 and 2017 (inclusive). TERN survey plots are 1 ha (100 x 100 m) permanently established sites located in a homogeneous area of terrestrial vegetation. At each plot, TERN survey teams record vegetation composition and structural characteristics and collect a range of plant samples using a point-intercept method. Species were assigned a photosynthetic pathway using literature and carbon stable isotope analysis of bulk tissue collected by TERN at the survey plots. </p><p>The data set is comprised of two data tables and one data descriptor that defines the values in the two data tables. The first table contains a list of each species and its photosynthetic pathway. The second table includes a list of all the peer-reviewed sources used to create this data set. </p><p>This data set will be updated on an annual basis as TERN’s plot network expands and new information becomes available. </p>

    The record contains leaf traits information measured on <i>Eucalyptus tereticornis</i> trees from the EucFACE site in Cumberland Plain in 2012. Data on tree height, leaf dry mass per unit leaf area (LMA), stomatal conductance to water vapour (<i>gs</i>), light saturated leaf net CO<sub>2</sub>assimilation rates (A<sub>sat</sub>) and maximum net CO<sub>2</sub> exchange rate at light- and CO<sub>2</sub>-saturation (A<sub>max</sub>) are provided.

    The record contains information on the leaf level physiology, chemistry and structural traits data measured from dominant tree and shrub species from the Great Western Woodlands Site in 2013. Data on leaf level physiology parameters associated with light saturated photosynthesis and intercellular carbon dioxide curves (AC<sub>i</sub>), and leaf dry mass per leaf area trait (LMA) and leaf nitrogen and phosphorous content are provided.

    This record contains data on the leaf level physiology, chemistry and structural traits from the Robson Creek Site, Far North Queensland measured in 2012. There are two data sets provided: 1) response variables containing parameters associated with photosynthetic light response curves (Al) and 2) response variables containing parameters associated with photosynthesis and intercellular carbon dioxide curves (ACi).
