This data set provides environmental, soil, and vegetation data collected between 1973 and 1980 from 89 study plots in the Prudhoe Bay region of Alaska. Data includes the baseline plot information for vegetation, soils, and site factors for study plots subjectively located in 43 plant communities and 4 broad habitat types across the glaciated landscape. Specific attributes include: dominant vegetation, species, and cover; soil chemistry, physical characteristics, moisture, and organic matter. This product brings together for easy reference all the available information collected from the plots that has been used for classification, mapping, and analysis of geobotanical factors in the Prudhoe Bay region and across Alaska.
