Description

This data set provides environmental, soil, and vegetation data collected in August 1989 from 81 study plots at the Toolik Lake research site, located in the southern Arctic Foothills of the Brooks Range, Alaska. Data includes the baseline plot information for vegetation, soils, and site factors for the study plots subjectively located in 26 communities and 4 broad habitat types across the glaciated landscape. Specific attributes include: dominant vegetation species, cover, indices, and biomass pools; 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 the classification, mapping, and analysis of geobotanical factors in the Toolik Lake region and across Alaska.
