Representing several person-years worth of work (and several actual years, too!) our UMBC Forest Plot data paper and dataset is now published in the ESA journal Ecology as a Data Paper http://dx.doi.org/10.1890/14-2246.1. The dataset includes a census of all woody stems greater than or equal to 1 centimeter in diameter at breast height (DBH) at the Knoll and Herbert Run sites at UMBC. In total roughly 7000 stems were mapped, tagged, measured, and identified to species. The dataset is made available free to the public at the link above in the format of the CTFS Forest Geo Forest Dynamics Network. Check out the paper and dataset and have a look at the forests of UMBC (Link to Forest Plot Site), patchy forests within an urban / suburban matrix that while lacking the biodiversity or glamour of other locations, still provide important services to ecosystems in the surrounding anthropogenic landscape.
