Sapflow measurements from around the world
Promoting analyses of great scientific relevance and impact, and expanding the value of individual datasets

SAPFLUXNET is an initiative aiming at compiling a global database of sap flow measurements in plants led by CREAF researchers and an international team of collaborators. The main goal of SAPFLUXNET is to advance in the scientific understanding of the ecological factors driving plant transpiration across the globe.
SAPFLUXNET began as a 3-year project starting in October 2015 at CREAF and funded by the Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness MINECO (Grant Nº CGL2014-55883-JIN).
SAPFLUXNET is available to everyone via Zenodo website.
Please acknowledge the use of SAPFLUXNET by citing the SAPFLUXNET data paper or the Zenodo dataset, if the data paper is still unpublished.
When a small subset of SAPFLUXNET datasets are used, acknowledgement via citation of original publications presenting individual datasets should be considered.
Please use the sapfluxnetr package to access the SAPFLUXNET database, once downloaded.
For any questions or data issues please send us an email to email@example.com.
