Permanent PLOT

Transects 150 m long and 5 m wide were established in 100 sites (usually one transect per site). A linear direction was followed whenever possible but frequent deviations were needed due to uneven ground and very dense vegetation. All efforts were made to progress towards the core of the forest to avoid margin effects. Transects were marked with ropes to facilitate recognition.

The data for each transects is available in the Resources section.
