Variables

Variables: 

TransectPlot
  • Label: Transect-plot identifier
  • Definition: Sixty 2x2 m seedling and sapling plots associated with appoximately every other grid pole and representative of habitat frequencies; topographic locations and aspect. Format: A#; where A is in:{A;...;K} B is in:{1;...;11}.
  • Type: Nominal
  • Missing values: None specified
SPECIE
  • Label: Species Code
  • Definition: LEF Code for species studies
  • Type: Code list
  • Codes:
    • CECPEL = Cecropia peltata
    • PHYRIV = Phytolacca rivinoides
    • HETCYM = Heterotrichum cymosum
    • SOLTOR = Solanum torvum
    • PIPTRE = Piper treleaseanum
    • PIPHIS = Piper hispidium
  • Missing values: None specified
TagID
  • Label: Tag Identifier
  • Definition: All woody species greater than 10 cm in height in the 1/2 X 2 mm subplot (excluding vines but including palms) tagged with orange flagging tape at the stem base. The seedling number sequence in each plot begins with 1 and goes as high as 1000. A palm is included if the leaflets reach 10 cm or more in height. An aluminum tag is added if the plant reaches 1 m in height. All woody species greater than 10 cm in height in the 1/2 X 2 mm subplot (excluding vines but including palms) tagged with orange flagging tape at the stem base. The seedling number sequence in each plot begins with 1 and goes as high as 1000. A palm is included if the leaflets reach 10 cm or more in height. An aluminum tag is added if the plant reaches 1 m in height.
  • Type: Nominal
  • Missing values: None specified
StartDate
  • Label: Starting measuring date
  • Definition: First day of measurements conducted in the survey (in mm/dd/yy)
  • Type: Date/time
  • Date format: mm/dd/yyyy
  • Missing values: None specified
Height
  • Label: Seedling Height
  • Definition: Measured along the longest stem axis in non-palms. For shrubs that branch at the base; each stem greater 1 m tall receives a separate tag; each bearing the same plant number but differentiated by the addition of a unique letter (eg. 42A; 42 B; and 42C). Palm height recorded as the height of the tallest palm leaflets/ the height of bifulcation of the newest leaf bases. A blank in this field could mean that the plant is dead; the tag was not found; the plot has no vegetation; among other reasons.
  • Type: Physical quantity
  • Unit: centimeter
  • Maximum: Not specified
  • Minimum: Not specified
  • Precision: Not specified
  • Missing values: None specified
BasalDiam
  • Label: Seedling Basal Diameter (dbh)
  • Definition: Mesured with calipers above any basal swelling. Switch to measure dbh when the plant grows 1 cm dbh. The first time dbh is measured; both basal diameter and dbh are recorded and stem is painted just bellow the dbh measurement point. A blank in this field could mean that the plant is dead; the tag was not found; the plot has no vegetation; among other reasons.
  • Type: Physical quantity
  • Unit: centimeter
  • Maximum: Not specified
  • Minimum: Not specified
  • Precision: Not specified
  • Missing values: None specified
less than 10cm Ht.
  • Label: Number of woody seedlings less than 10 cm tall
  • Definition: Number of woody seedlings less than10 cm tall recorded by species within the .5 X 2 m subplot
  • Type: Nominal
  • Missing values: None specified
Comments
  • Label: Comments at the field
  • Definition: Comments annotated by observer at the field.
  • Type: Nominal
  • Missing values: None specified
