Long-Term Ecological Research (LTER)/HFR006: Hurricane Simulation
Entry ID: LTER_HFR006

Abstract: HFR006:
Trees will be pulled down to simulate hurricane damage in two mixed hardwood plots: (1) 0.35 ha, September 1989; (2) 0.6 ha, September 1990. In the first plot, the extent of damage, changes in microtopography, and vegetation regeneration will be measured. In the second plot, vegetation will be measured and mapped before the pulldown. After the pulldown, selected areas will be treated with ... View entire text
