    Terrestrial laser scans were acquired in native Eucalypt Open Forest (dry sclerophyll Box-Ironbark forest) in Victoria, Australia. Two plots (RUSH06 and RUSH07) with a 40 m radius were established in Rushworth forest and partially harvested in May 2012 to acquire accurate estimates of above-ground biomass. The main tree species in these plots were Eucalyptus leucoxylon, Eucalyptus microcarpa and Eucalyptus tricarpa. Single trees were extracted from the TLS data and quantitative structure models were used to estimate the tree volume directly from the point cloud data. Above-ground biomass (AGB) was inferred from the derived volumes and basic wood density information, and compared with estimates of above-ground biomass derived from allometric equations and destructive sampling.

(2014)</a> for further information.

    Destructive sampling of 47 <em>Eucalyptus obliqua</em> trees was carried out in the Warra Tall Eucalypt site to determine a range of biomass measures that can be used to inform allometric equations.

    The record contains information on litterfall data from four 1-hectare plots from the Great Western Woodlands site collected in 2014. Data on total litter weights from fifteen litter traps in each of four 1-ha study plots and crown canopy cover percent is provided.

    <br>This dataset lists plant species and their abundance identified at rangeland sites across Australia by the TERN Surveillance Monitoring team, using standardised AusPlots methodologies. <br /> <br>Plant occurrences (i.e. a sample of a plant at a particular point and time) are methodically identified at each site as part of the AusPlots Point intercept method. Plant species are identified at each site as part of the AusPlots Vegetation vouchering and Basal Area methods. In addition to site visit date and location, the information provided includes growth form, vegetative height and whether the plant is dead. In-canopy-sky is also recorded if there is no intercept to foliage or branches when viewing the canopy through the densitometer and can be used to calculate species cover or aerial cover. Other recorded information includes dead plants basal area and the number of sampling points. Species identification is updated once confirmed by Herbaria. Plant occurrences data can be aggregated across the site to calculate relative species abundance, green ground cover, species- growth form- and -community-level basal area.<br /> <br>In addition, at least one specimen is taken from each species at the site, assigned a barcode and provided for vouchering and further analyses. See AusPlots Rangelands Vocabularies for a list of parameters collected. </br>

    This data contains stem diameter, height measurement and above ground living biomass calculations for a Eucalyptus dominated woodland from 2015 - present. Diameter and height measurements for stems ≥10cm diameter at breast height were sampled within the core 1 ha plot within the Tumbarumba Wet Eucalypt site.

    This data contains stem diameter, height measurement and above ground living biomass calculations for an Australian tropical rainforest. Diameter and height measurements for stems ≥10cm diameter at breast height were sampled in 2012, 2018 and 2023 within a 1 ha plot within the Daintree Rainforest Cow Bay site.

    The dataset comprises calculations of diameter, height, volume, biomass (total and carbon) of all stems (dead or alive) > 10cm diameter at breast height in the Core 1-ha plot at the Warra Tall Eucalypt site

    This data contains stem diameter, height measurement and above ground living biomass calculations for an Australian tropical rainforest. Diameter and height measurements for stems ≥10cm diameter at breast height were sampled between 2001 - 2010 in the canopy crane plot and in 2014 within the core 1 ha plot within the Daintree Rainforest, Cape Tribulation site.
