This study investigated whether defoliation of forest canopies could accelerate ecosystem nitrogen losses via ammonia (NH3) volatilization. These data were generated in laboratory experiments that measured volatilization of NH3 from gypsy moth caterpillars feeding on oak leaves. This dataset is a contribution to the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies, and is part of the public data archive Nutrient Cycling: Long Term Monitoring of Forest Ecosystems.
