CSPs: Tree growth of trees with a DBH between 3 and 10cm in the CSPs (2008-2012)

Usage Rights

This data is Private.

Dataset Abstract

To test the effect of diversity on stand productivity, in summer 2018 and 2012 we measure the diameter at breast height (DBH) of alI individuals with a DBH between 3 and 10 cm in the central subplot of each CSP (the central subplot is a 10 x 10 m square in the middle of the CSP). In 2012, we also measured the height (parallel to the stem if the tree was leaning) of the same trees.

Dataset Design

In 2008, 27 plots were established. The size of each plot was 30 m x 30 m. In the central subplot of each CSP we marked all trees with a DBH between 3 and 10 cm, and monitor their growth in 2008 and 2012.

Temporal Extent

Data were recorded between spring 2008 and autumn 2012.

Taxonomic Extent

Trees with DBH >= 10 cm

Data Analysis

Stand basal area is analzyed as a function of tree species richness.
