Title: Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER)/CDR024: Plant Community and Soil Development During Secondary Succession at Cedar Creek
Description:
Abstract:
LTER - Long-Term Ecological Research Program/Cedar Creek Natural History Area (CDR) LTER/CDR024 [Summary adapted from the LTER Core Data Set Catalog]: Major herbivores were excluded from fifteen 12 m x 12 m plots in a newly abandoned old-field. Main treatments include gopher removals, all large vertebrate removals, and controls. Smaller (3 m x 12 m) grasshopper removals are nested within main treatments. Gopher distur-bance will be quantified throughout the summer season. Soils (including N mineralization) and vegetation will be sampled regularly on 100-point grids within each plot. Proprietary limits: Access limited, but available with permission from investigators, until subsets are published. The Cedar Creek Natural History Area (CCNHA) is a 2200 hectare experimental ecological reserve operated by the University of Minnesota in cooperation with the Minnesota Academy of Sciences. CCNHA is located in Anoka and Isanti Counties north of Minneapolis/St. Paul. The site was established in 1940, was designated a National Natural Landmark by the National Park Service in 1975. In 1977 it was included as an Experimental Ecology Reserve in a proposed network, and in 1982 it was one of 11 sites in the U.S. selected by the National Science Foundation for funding of LTER. Information about LTER is also available at 'http://lternet.edu/'
