Arctic Vegetation Plots Legacy Project Barter Island and Point Barrow, Alaska, 1994
Entry ID: Barter_Barrow_Veg_Plots_1534_1


Summary
Abstract: This dataset provides vegetation cover and environmental plot and soil data collected at two U.S. Air Force sites at Barter Island (BI) and Point Barrow (B), on the coastal North Slope of Alaska, in 1994. At Barter Island, 31 plots, and 30 plots at Barrow, were subjectively located in 14 plant communities. The investigation was part of a larger study initiated by the United States Congress to provide an opportunity to enhance the stewardship of the natural and cultural resources land under Department of Defense jurisdiction. These two sites were characterized to build an inventory of the biotic communities to compare them to historic communities.
