Jewel Cave National Monument, Field Plots Data Base for Vegetation MappingEntry ID: usgs_nps_jewelcave
Abstract: Vegetation field plots at Jewel Cave NM were visited, described, and
documented in a digital database. The database consists of 2 parts - (1)
Physical Descriptive Data, and (2) Species Listing.
The purpose is to provide National Parks with the necessary tools to
effectively manage their natural resources. Plot data is collected and analyzed
to develop a classification (using the Standardized National Vegetation
Classification System) and description of vegetation types in preparation for
photointerpretation and mapping of the monument's vegetation types.
Field sampling was conducted using releve plots.
Information for this metadata was obtained from the site
http://biology.usgs.gov/npsveg/jeca/metajecafield.html and put into NASA
Directory Interchange Format.
