Vegetation in Idaho shrublands

Typical plot photo for ground cover estimates and location of LAI measurements.

Typical plot photo for ground cover estimates and location of LAI measurements. A rangepole with GPS and a camera boom was positioned at 2-meter intervals along plot transects. This photo is from the Hollister, Sagebrush01 plot, and the Sagebrush01_5_4 sampling point.

Shrubland Species Cover, Biometric, Carbon and Nitrogen Data, Southern Idaho, 2014

This dataset provides the results of the characterization of shrubland vegetation at two study areas in southern Idaho, USA: the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed (RCEW) and Hollister. Data were collected in September and October 2014. In each study area, several 10-m x 10-m plots were randomly established that are representative of the local dominant vegetation types. Measurements are reported for both plot and individual shrub attributes. Plot measurements include shrub density and biometric data, percent shrub cover derived from line intercept transects, percent plant species and bare ground cover derived from photo analysis, and average LAI. Measurements for selected individual shrubs include height, width, length, number of stems, and LAI. Leaf samples were collected for determining LAI, specific leaf area (SLA), carbon and nitrogen concentrations, and isotopic nitrogen and carbon.
