A China's normalized tree biomass equation dataset Y. Luo, X. Wang, and Z. Ouyang

Short summary
How to accurately estimate tree and forest biomass a concern worldwide. Biomass equations are the most commonly used method. China is one of the most important ecoregions of the world. Here, we develop a tree biomass equation dataset for China via literature retrieval. This dataset consists of 5924 equations for nearly 200 tree species, showing sound geographical, climatic and forest coverage across China. Furthermore, multiple potential avenues for future research are identified.
