abstract Shoot density data for C3 and C4 plants in the C3, C4 and mixed communities under ambient and elevated CO2 and in chamberless plots. Scirpus olneyi densities were obtained by censusing the entire plot, Spartina patens densities and densities of other C4 plants were obtained by subsampling each plot.
