Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER)/HBR014: Revegetation Surveys on Stripcut WS 101 at the Hubbard Brook Experimental ForestEntry ID: LTER_HBR014
Abstract: LTER - Long-Term Ecological Research Program/Hubbard Brook
Experimental Forest (HBEF).
In November 1970, the 12-ha watershed 101 at the HBEF was clearcut as
a stem-only commercial block clearcut. Regrowing vegetation has been
remeasured on 48 plots in 1971, 1972, 1973, 1975, 1977, 1980, and
Stems < 2.5 dbh were measured by species on 4-m2 subplots per plot.
Stems 2.5 cm - 10 ... cm dbh were measured on one 25 m2 plot per plot.
Separate plots were harvested to produce or test biomass conversion
equations. Results for 1971- 1980 were published in Martin and
Hornbeck 1989 (USDA Forest Service Res. Pap. NE-625).
The Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest (HBEF) is a 3,160 hectare
reserve dedicated to the long-term study of forest and stream
ecosystems. Located in the White Mountain National Forest of New
Hampshire, the HBEF was established in 1955 and is operated by the
USDA Forest Service, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station.
