Forest Inventories from Acre, Brazil

An unburned forest plot at the Transacreana site in Acre, Brazil. Data were collected in late 2017.

Forest Inventories and DBH at Burned and Unburned Forest Sites, Acre, Brazil, 2017

This dataset provides measurements of diameter at breast height (DBH) and species identifications for forests in eastern Acre state, where intensive forest cover change has occurred and remnant forests are highly fragmented. Four locations were surveyed in October an December 2017 and sites include forests burned in 2005 and 2010 and nearby unburned areas. These data can be used to characterize the post-fire recovery of forest sites from wildfires and the impact of fire frequency on forest structure and species composition.
