Abstract:
Characterization of the biotic and abiotic conditions give an insight into the structure of the habitat. The presence of dead wood or open soil can act as an indicator for disturbance as well as heterogenity. Therefore this data are indispensable for assessment of ecosystem attributes.
Design:
The CSPs were established in May - June 2008 in the Gutianshan Nature Reserve as well as outside the Nature Reserve. The CSPs have a size of 30 x 30 metres and are exposed to the north. The central plot hold a size of 10 x 10 metres and is situated in the centre.
Spatial extent:
The study was performed in the central plots (10 x 10 metres) of the 27 Comparative Study Plots (CSPs) in Gutianshan Nature Reserve. The survey was done between May - July 2008.
