Data and Forestry

There's not much to photograph when we spend the morning collating our salamander data and writing a rough draft of the research paper.

There's more to see when we learned how to sample a forest stand.

One of the items we need to do is estimate the groundcover in a square meter.

We learned how to measure "dbh" ("diameter at breast height") using a student "tree.

Then we measured dbh on real trees!
