This data set is associated with Curasi et al., 2022 ( it includes detailed survey data for Eriophorum vaginatum spanning sites in the Alaskan, Canadian, and Russian Arctic. The data set includes detailed surveys of tussock density and diameter, shrub basal diameter and abundance, the relationship between tussock size and mass, the relationship between shrub size and mass, tussock chemical properties, soil properties, and bulk density. It also includes outputs and projections from a tussock machine learning ecological niche model. This data was collected to characterize the distribution of this foundation species across the landscape and illustrate its role in the ecosystem. The data collection methods and subsequent analysis are described in detail in
