Dataset Abstract

This dataset contains the location, size and species of the trees in each plot. After the first year all the BETPEN trees in POL30 were removed. They have been left in the file.

Spatial Extent

Poland

Taxonomic Extent

The focal tree species in Poland are Betula pendula, Carpinus betulus, Picea abies, Pinus sylvestris and Quercus robur

Data Analysis

2017-07-31: Most of the Acer trees reclassified as Acer platanoides, and the single Q. petraea record reclassified as Q. robber. These are all non-target trees in the affected plots, so none of the diversity measures are affected.
2013-04-30: Missing trees removed from file (POL10,tree 2; POL11,tree36;POL21,tree 4). DBH corrected: POL20, tree 47.
2013-05-10: added column to indicate dead trees.
