Description

This dataset provides the complete catalog of forest inventory and biophysical measurements collected over selected forest research sites across the Amazon rainforest in Brazil between 2009 and 2018 for the Sustainable Landscapes Brazil Project. This dataset includes measurements for diameter at breast height (DBH), commercial tree height, and total tree height for forest inventories. Also included for each tree are the family, common and scientific names, coordinates, canopy position, crown radius, and for dead trees, the decomposition status. Aboveground biomass estimate is available for selected sites. The data are provided in comma-separated values (CSV) and shapefile formats. Sampling methodology for each site and year is described in companion files.
