A Forest Vegetation Database for Western OregonEntry ID: USGS_OFR_2004_1249
Abstract: Data on forest vegetation in western Oregon were assembled for 2323 ecological
survey plots. All data were from fixed-radius plots with the standardized
design of the Current Vegetation Survey (CVS) initiated in the early 1990s. For
each site, the database includes: 1) live tree density and basal area of common
tree species, 2) total live tree density, basal area, estimated biomass, and
estimated leaf area; 3) age of the oldest overstory tree examined, 4)
geographic coordinates, 5) elevation, 6) interpolated climate variables, and 7)
other site variables. The data are ideal for ecoregional analyses of existing
