CSPs: Coarse woody debris (CWD) items: metal tags of dead wood and corresponding metal tags and stem ids from the living tree data.

This data is Free for public.

Dataset Abstract

List of CWD items, their metal tags, and corresponding stem ids or counfounding metal tags from the 2008, 2009, and 2010 living tree data gathered by Martin Baruffol and Xiulian Chi.

Dataset Design

The list results from searchin metal tags in the three files "Coarse woody debris (CWD): Collection of data on dead wood with special regard to snow break", "Corrected tree tags on the CSP trees and tree size measures from 2010." and "Tree size in the CSPs in 2008 and 2009". It lists the metal tag numbers, the stem IDs, and the CWD ids. As of now, tree crown origins were not considered, so these are references to the stems within the living tree data.

Data Analysis

Mind that there are some duplicate metal tags that are used for more than one object in different CSPs! You need this file to identify the stems that are referenced in both the living and the debris dataset. To avoid double counting, one of each should be removed.
