Global Patterns in Net Primary Productivity (NPP in Mg C/cell)

Jan 6, 2011
Dataset was used in a scientifically peer-reviewed publication
Description:
NPP—the net amount of solar energy converted to plant organic matter through photosynthesis—can be measured in units of elemental carbon and represents the primary food energy source for the world's ecosystems. Human appropriation of net primary productivity (HANPP), through the consumption of food, paper, wood and fiber, alters the composition of the atmosphere, levels of biodiversity, energy flows within food webs and the provision of important ecosystem services.
