Properties of tall-tussock (Chionochloa) shoots and soils in New Zealand natural grasslands
Shoots of nine species of tall-tussock (Chionochloa) and their associated soils were sampled from 141 sites throughout New Zealand. Data for each site are given as: Site descriptions; soil physical properties; pH; available Ca, K, Mg, Ca; three forms of readily soluble phosphate, and inorganic phosphorus fractions; shoot lengths and weights; concentrations and weights of P, S, N, K, Na, Mg, and Ca for three shoot components.
