Original Data Tables
Source of Primary records, lists all species encountered for each
plot.Contains plot number; alpha-numeric species codes; scientific
names of plant species found on plots; percent cover by species from 6
meter square quadrats, 2 17.8-m shrub transects, tree canopy cover
estimates and searches for additional species present (assigned 1
percent cover each). Cover classes are 0-5 %, 5-25% and >25% for

Source of vegetation type data. From dataset description: "The
numbering system, the format, and most of the descriptions have been
taken and modified from Robert F. Holland's Preliminary Descriptions
of the Terrestrial Natural Communities of California (Holland 1986).
We borrowed additional descriptions from an adaptation of the system
for Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks."
