LBA-ECO ND-11 Ecotone Vegetation Survey and Biomass, NW Mato Grosso, Brazil: 2004

Data Set Overview

Data setLBA-ECO ND-11 Ecotone Vegetation Survey and Biomass, NW Mato Grosso, Brazil: 2004

This data set reports the results of a vegetation survey along transects across the transition zones between the three major forest types in the seasonally dry forest of the southwestern Amazon Basin in the municipality of Juruena, Mato Grosso in 2004. The major forest types are differentiated by tree species composition, biomass, soil type, and landscape position: (1) campinarana; high stem density and low biomass on sandstone outcrops, (2) palm forest; low-lying seasonally inundated areas dominated by palms and, (3) terra firme; low stem density and high biomass. Along these 10 x 100 m transects, all trees, palms, and lianas >= 10 cm DBH in 10 x 10 m plots and, in nested 2 x 10 m subplots, all trees, palms and lianas >=1 cm DBH were measured, identified and georeferenced. Plot locations and survey data are reported in two comma separated files.

Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere : The Large-Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere Experiment in Amazonia (LBA) is an intensive scientific investigation of the tropical rainforest of Brazil and portions of adjacent countries. Like FIFE and BOREAS, this project uses intensive remote-sensing techniques and ground-based experiments to investigate the atmosphere-biosphere-hydrosphere dynamics of this large tropical region. The LBA Project encompasses several scientific disciplines, or components. The LBA-ECO component focuses on the question: "How do tropical forest conversion, regrowth, and selective logging influence carbon storage, nutrient dynamics, trace gas fluxes, and the prospect for sustainable land use in Amazonia?"
