Dataset Abstract

Mean tree height and basal diameter, dbh and crown height and diameter for FunDivEUROPE Focal trees and their 8 neighbours

Spatial Extent

Biotree, Kaltenborn, Thuringia, Germany, Method for tree height: vertical height, i.e. not stem length; Method for stem diameter: diameter (mean of 2 directions or calculated from measured circumference), basal diameter was measured at 30 cm or 10 cm from the ground; Corwn parameters: Crown height: Height of first regular branch that is alive; crown diameter parallel: maximum diameter along planting row, crown radius across: maximum diameter vertical to planting row. Trees with the same TreeID are either two individuals planted were only one was needed, or are mutlistemmed individuals (see "notes"). Please note that Quercus is represented by Quercus petraea and Quercus robur (see notes in column "robur?"); For experimental design of the BIOTREE experiment and detailed informtion on soil properties see: Scherer-Lorenzen, M., Schulze, E.-D., Don, A., Schumacher, J. & Weller, E. (2007) Exploring the functional significance of forest diversity: A new long-term experiment with temperate tree species (BIOTREE).
