Data Set Overview
|Data set||Pre-ABoVE: Poplar Vegetation Plots, Arctic and Interior Alaska and Yukon, 2003-2005|
|Project||Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment|
|Time Period||2003-06-18 to 2005-08-17|
This data set provides vegetation cover and environmental plot data collected from 32 balsam poplar (Populus balsamifera L., Salicaceae) vegetation plots located on the Arctic Slope of Alaska and in the interior boreal forests of Alaska and the Yukon from 2003 to 2005. The estimated percent land cover by species per plot are according to the older Braun-Blanquet cover-abundance scale. Plot data includes moisture, topographic position, slope, aspect, shape, and soil data.

Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment: The Arctic-Boreal Vulnerability Experiment (ABoVE) is a NASA Terrestrial Ecology Program field campaign that will take place in Alaska and western Canada between 2016 and 2021. Climate change in the Arctic and Boreal region is unfolding faster than anywhere else on Earth. ABoVE seeks a better understanding of the vulnerability and resilience of ecosystems and society to this changing environment.
