A Forest Vegetation Database for Western Oregon
Entry ID: USGS_OFR_2004_1249

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
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
vegetation.
