Chaparral biomass measurements in the Cleveland National Forest

posted on 2024-06-05, 12:47 authored by U.S. Forest Service
This data publication provides plot-based measurements of: stem diameter for each stem > 0.4 centimeters on every sampled shrub, shrub status at time of sampling (live/dead/charred), and estimated shrub height obtained from 5 plots sampled in 2012-2013 on each of three sites (15 total plots) in the Cleveland National Forest. The sites are located near Kitchen Creek Road on southern Laguna Mountain in San Diego County, CA and were characterized by time since last burn -- 7 years, 28 years, or 68 years prior to the study.

These data also include stem diameter, biomass, and representative percent moisture values from shrubs harvested outside of the study plots at 18 locations across the three sites. Locations were outside, but near to, the study plots to avoid destructive sampling within the study plots. These data were collected between 2011 and 2013.

This record was taken from the USDA Enterprise Data Inventory that feeds into the catalog. Data for this record includes the following resources:
