Dataset Abstract

CSP matching individuals, with a DBH in between 3 and 10 cm, for the years 2008 and 2010 in the central plot of the CSPs. The central plot is a 10*10m square in the middle of the CSP. DBH and basal area have been measured.

Spatial Extent

Comparative study plots (CSPs)

CSP
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.

stemID
ID of each stem, composed of the Plot number, tag identifier and stem number. The middle part is the silver Id, which was not unique in some cases, so that letters were added. Since multistem trees were only tagged once, they have a number added.
