This data set provides environmental, soil, and vegetation data collected in July and August 1997 from 85 study plots in willow shrub communities located along a north-south transect from the Brooks Range to Prudhoe Bay on the North Slope of Alaska. Data includes the baseline plot information for vegetation, soils, and site factors for the study plots subjectively located in three 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 region and across Alaska.
