Pilot experiment: tree sapling estimated biomass - July 2010

Usage Rights

This data is Private.

Dataset Abstract

Estimated data of individual biomass of July 2010 in Pilot experiment (SP7, Species Pool 1 & 3) by the allomerty equations. --- Including estimated tree biomass data of block 1, 2 & 3, and the harvest data of block 4.

Dataset Design

We used the allometric equations to estimate the biomass of individuals in block 1, 2 and 3 which were not harvested in July 2010. The equations were established by the biomass data of sapling individual which were harvested in July & September 2010 and in July 2011 in Pilot Experiment.

Spatial Extent

The experiment was located within N29 06.325 / E117 55.244, in the south-west N29 06.293 / E117 55.235, in the north-east N29 06.295 / E117 55.326 and in the southeast N29 06.266 / E117 55.329 in the lower valley of Tiquanshui river (体泉水),Xinjianxiang, Jiangxi Province

plot_id_old
In former versions of this dataset another nomenclature for plot identification has been used in comparison to other datasets concerning the Pilot-Experiment. This has been unified across all Pilot Experiment datasets. This column contains the original plot_id assigned from the original investigator. This column has been kept to e.g. allow backtracking of values from older version of this dataset

plot_id
Reasearch plots of the Biodiversity - Ecosystem functioning experiment (BEF-China). There are three main sites for research plots in the BEF Experiment: Comparative Study Plots (CSP) in the Gutianshan Nature Reserve, having a size of 30x30m^2, measured on the ground. Main Experiment plots have a size of 1 mu, which is about 25x25m^2 in horizontal projection. Pilot Study Plots have a size of 1x1 m^2. Research plots on the main experiment have a "p" in front of their IDs and then a 6 digit code: Plots in the main sites A and B are named according to their position in the original spreadsheet, in which they were designed. They consist of 6 digits: _1st digit_: Site (1:A, 2:B), _digit 2and3_: southwards row: as in spreadsheets the rows are named from the top to the bottom; _digit 4 and 5_: westward column: as in the original spreadsheet, but the letters are converted to numbers (A=01, B=02); _6th digit_: indicator, if the plot has been shifted a quarter mu. Example: "p205260": "p" means that this is a plot that is specified. "2" means, that we are at site B. Now the coordinates of the south - west corner: "0526". Since "e" is the fifth letter of the alphabet, this is Plot E26. The last digit "0" means that this plot was not moved by a quarter of a Mu, as some sites in Site A. The 6th digit can also indicate the subplot within the plot. "5", "6", "7", "8" indicate the northwest, northeast, southeast, and southwest quarter plot respectively.
