Dataset Abstract

List of all woody species (trees, shrubs, palms, bamboos) in Gutianshan Nature reserve. This file contains all shrub and tree species listed in "Lou, L. H. and G. Y. Li (1988). Biota of Gutianshan Nature Reserve: list of seed plants. Manuscript.", which is the book Fang Teng used.
Additionally the list contains abundance data: (1) individual numbers in the 24ha plot. (2) total individual numbers in the 27 CSPs. (3) based on these and Fang Tengs "guestimate" an abundances value as class (dominant, common, less common, very rare) which can be interpreted, based on the mean percentage individuals per class in 24ha-plot and CSPs as percentage individuals (4.75% 0.786% 0.1% and 0.001%, summing up to 100%) or more intuitively: 5%, 1%, 0.1% 0.001% (which sums up to 111%).

Spatial Extent

List of all woody species (trees, shrubs, palms, bamboos) in Gutianshan Nature reserve representing the total woody species pool. This file contains all shrub and tree species listed in "Lou, L. H. and G. Y. Li (1988). Biota of Gutianshan Nature Reserve: list of seed plants. Manuscript.", which is the book Fang Teng used. Additionally the list contains abundance data: (1) individual numbers in the 24ha plot. (2) total individual numbers in the 27 CSPs. (3) based on these abundance classes were defined (dominant, common, less common, very rare) and extended to all species of GTS nature reserve by Fang Tengs "guestimate". Note that the list contains one bamboo and a palm, which are woody, but not necessarily classified as tree or shrub. Note second that a number of species ist listed but has no abundance value ("NA"), because they occurr only as cultivated trees and do not occur in forest. These species were partly used during the build up of the phylogeny and thus are retained in the data set, but should be deleted if the species pool of the Gutianshan Nature reserve is analysed based on this list.

Taxonomic Extent

All woody species: trees, shrubs, palms and large bamboos

Data Analysis

After abundance classes were set up, the mean percentage individuals per class in 24ha-plot + CSPs wer calculated as percentage individuals: 4.75% 0.786% 0.1% and 0.001%, summing up to 100%. More intuitively, the classes can be interpreted as 5%, 1%, 0.1% 0.001% (which sums up to 111%).

Abundance_class_GTS
species name as written in the ecological monographs list; Datagroup description: Abundance in classes: dominant, common, less common, very rare. These are based on the abundance data in the 24ha plot and the CSPs, from which a first classification was made. In a second step, Fang Teng corrected these "guestimates" based on his experience especially for all species that did not occur in both 24ha plot and CSPs.

Abundance_class_GTS_percent
Author in the ecologicial monographs list (only if it is different from fullauthor); Datagroup description: Abundance in classes: dominant, common, less common, very rare. These are based on the abundance data in the 24ha plot and the CSPs, from which a first classification was made. In a second step, Fang Teng corrected these "guestimates" based on his experience especially for all species that did not occur in both 24ha plot and CSPs. Based on the actual abundance data on 24ha+CPS, the mean percentage of individuals per class was calculated. The abundances classes (dominant, common, less common, very rare) thus correspond to mean percentage individuals per class (4.75%, 0.786%, 0.1% and 0.001%, summing up to 100%) or more intuitively: 5%, 1%, 0.1% 0.001% (which sums up to 111%).
