LTER Georgia Coastal Ecosystems - Fall 2002 plant monitoring survey -- shoot height and flowering status of plants in permanent plots at GCE sampling sites 1-10
Entry ID: page13_LTER_GCE_PLT_GCEM_0211

Abstract: A quadrat survey was conducted in October 2002 to measure the species and size
distribution of plants at 10 GCE LTER sampling sites. The quadrats were
established as permanent plots at GCE sampling sites in October 2000 by placing
