Data Set Overview
|Data set||LBA-ECO ND-11 Regeneration in Undisturbed and Logged Forests, NW Mato Grosso, Brazil|
|Project||Large Scale Biosphere-Atmosphere|
|Time Period||2003-09-23 to 2004-01-21|
This data set reports the results of field surveys to determine: regeneration diversity and size distribution of plants in primary undisturbed forest; and regeneration diversity and size distribution of trees in a one hundred hectare block, six years after reduced impact logging treatment (vine removal) was applied in 1998. In addition, wood density and carbon concentrations in commercially harvested species are reported. All surveys were performed in 2003 and 2004 within block 5 of the logging concession at the Fazenda Rohsamar in the municipality of Jurena in northwestern Mato Grosso, Brazil. The data are reported in three 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?"
