The dataset comprises vegetation cover and shrub occurrence along a point intercept survey in two 1 ha plots at the Great Western Woodlands site in 2013
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.
Great Western Woodlands, Plant Functional Type Classification, Richness and Cover in Eucalyptus salubris Woodlands Across Time Since Fire Chronosequence, 2010-2011
This record contains information on the Plant Functional Type Classification, Richness and Cover in <i>Eucalyptus salubris</i> Woodlands, Great Western Woodland site. The data were generated across time since fire chronosequence, 2010-2011.
Great Western Woodlands, Changes in Plant Diversity Indices, Composition and Cover in Eucalyptus salubris Woodlands Across Time Since Fire Chronosequence, 2012
The data set contains information on plant diversity indices, species composition, vegetation cover and edaphic properties from the <i>Eucalyptus salubris</i> woodlands, Great Western Woodlands site. The data represents changes in plant diversity due to disturbance with time since fire in a chronosequence.
This data contains soil physico-chemical characteristics collected at the Great Western Woodlands site in 2012 and 2014.
Soil collection and analysis of chemical and physical attributes was carried out at the Great Western Woodlands site to provide contextual data for the Biomes of Australian Soil Environments (BASE) soil microbial diversity project.
The record contains information on leaf trait and stable isotope data of <i>Eucalyptus salubris</i> trees in the Credo Flux tower area, from the Great Western Woodlands Site. Data on individual tree height, stem circumference and leaf traits such as leaf thickness, leaf mass, leaf density, specific leaf area, leaf chemical data, including the d<sup>13</sup>C and d<sup>15</sup>N content are provided. In addition, data on soil chemical analysis from the site are provided.
Great Western Woodlands Diameter, Height, Basal Area, Sapwood Area and Aboveground Woody Biomass Data
This data contains stem diameter, height measurement, basal area, sapwood area and above ground living biomass calculations for all for stems ≥10cm diameter at breast height in four 1 ha plots at the Great Western Woodlands site in Western Australia from 2012 - present.
This dataset contains information on vegetation at a set of field sites along with associated environmental data extracted from spatial layers and selected ecological statistics. Measurements of vascular plants include species, growth form, height and cover from 1010 point intercepts per plot as well as systematically recorded absences, which are useful for predictive modelling and validation of remote sensing applications. The derived cover estimates are robust and repeatable, allowing comparisons among environments and detection of modest change. The field plots span a rainfall gradient of 129-1437 mm Mean Annual Precipitation ranging from aseasonal to highly seasonal. The dataset consists of a processed version the AusPlots Rangelands dataset with three components: 1) a site table with locality, environmental and summary ecology statistics for each plot; 2) a set of compiled point intercept records identified by individual hits, site visits and plots and; 3) a processed species percent cover against site/visit matrix for ecological analysis. The data have re-use potential for studies on vegetation properties in the Australian rangelands or as a species presence/absence dataset for testing ecological models. The dataset also provides opportunities for generic application such as testing community ecology theories or developing or demonstrating community ecology software, whether using the raw point by point intercept data or the derived percent cover matrix.
