Description

This data set provides environmental, soil, and vegetation data collected during August 2007 from 69 study plots at the Unalaska Island research site, and one plot on Amaknak Island. The study sites are within the eastern Aleutian Islands, Alaska, USA. Data includes the plot information for vegetation, soils, and site characteristics for the study plots subjectively located in 11 plant communities that occur in six broad habitat types. Specific attributes include: dominant vegetation species and cover, soil chemistry, moisture, organic matter, topography, and elevation. Cover-abundance was estimated for all vascular plants, bryophytes, and macrolichens according to the nine-point ordinal scale of Westhoff and van der Maarel (1973).
