Abstract:
1) Objectives: -- a) Quantify “undisturbed” state prior to snow break. -- b) Quantify carbon and nitrogen stocks in aboveground CWD as a component of a full carbon and nitrogen budget. -- c) Estimate turnover of CWD carbon depending on species, positioning and mortality i) Indirect carbon balance approach: Calculate deadwood input (I) to the forest floor by combining chronosequence data on woody increment and biomass. Calculate turnover under assumption of equilibrium stocks (M/I) ii) Direct approach: Revisit site after 2 to 3 years and measure position, take a sample to estimate density and volume loss (in-situ observations indicate a progression from a solid log to something substantially decayed within few months). -- d) Compare species-specific sensitivities to snowbreak as a trait i) Calculate the likelihood of being subject to snowbreak given the species, size and potentially the relative position using logistic regression ii) Calculate the likelihood of snag survival; this requires re-sampling iii) Estimate the down-slope transport of deadwood pieces iv) Estimate the time it takes for deadwood to collapse and touch the forest floor ----- File asset Plot_skizze.pdf: plot sketch how the debris objects are selected - File asset sp10 CWD_protocol_Gutianshan_AF_20081215_kn.doc: Inventory protocol, should be included into methods ----- 2) Objective allometries: use some of the downed or alive trees to establish coarse allometries to estimate volume of the remaining intems

Data analysis:
one can use it to assess the snowbreak loss and the amount of woody debris; mind that there are extra parts measured of trees labelled "allometries"; these parts should not be included into extrapolation of woody debris mass. Check column descriptions for more information. Ignore the "plotignore" rows, since these are double counted. To combine these data with the data of the living trees, check the dataset on metal tags and coarse woody debris items "Metal tags for coarse woody debris (CWD) items in the CSPs and corresponding metal tags and stem ids from the living tree data.".

k21 is CSP21, which was mapped by Christian and Karin, but was remapped by Anja and Thiemo. Some of the tags distributed by Christian were found again by Anja and they are the K? xy tags in the CSP21 observations. The k21 rows should be ignored, since they were remeasured.; Comparative Study Plots (CSP) in the Gutianshan Nature Reserve, having a size of 30x30m^2, measured on the ground.

Central_subplot
Definition:
This column indicates whether the data were taken on the whole plot (w) or on the center plot (c). Generally, all items belonging to an object that has a base diameter smaller than 10 cm have been measured in the central plot. Thus, one has to check if the item belongs to other items (CWD_CSP is the same), and then determine the maximal base diameter of the items belonging to that object.

Definition:
label ID of neighbouring individual: We locate every tagged individual CWD piece. In case of a snag and a broken top we record the position of the snag and also of the bottom part of the broken crown. This is always done in relationship to the nearest or nearby labeled reference tree. The number of this tree (#NN label) is noted as well as the distance (Dist. to NN) to it and the azimuth (Azim to NN) from the reference tree to the CWD piece. In case of logs without a visible base, the part with the largest diameter (or circumference) is used as a base. The position helps us to relocate the logs and also to quantify how fast they travel downslope. Mind that the azimuth may have to be corrected given the date and location, since it depends on the magnetic field of the earth.CSP metal tag number (trees, woody debris); Datagroup description: CSP metal tag number (trees, woody debris); Datagroup description: CSP tree individuals were marked mostly with metal tags but also additional tags were used.

Name:
neigh.dist
Definition:
distance to neighbour: We locate every tagged individual CWD piece. In case of a snag and a broken top we record the position of the snag and also of the bottom part of the broken crown. This is always done in relationship to the nearest or nearby labeled reference tree. The number of this tree (#NN label) is noted as well as the distance (Dist. to NN) to it and the azimuth (Azim to NN) from the reference tree to the CWD piece. In case of logs without a visible base, the part with the largest diameter (or circumference) is used as a base. The position helps us to relocate the logs and also to quantify how fast they travel downslope. Mind that the azimuth may have to be corrected given the date and location, since it depends on the magnetic field of the earth.

plot estimate
Definition:
Rows indicating a "no" in plot estimate are not part of the woody debris inventory, but additional data to construct allometries from tree individuals. Often the first entry for an allometry does count as a woody debris item, but the remaining pieces of that item should be ignored and estimated based on the allometries. Or the allometries are not used to extrapolate the biomass of the first item (for example a tree dbh).

Other projects might have used non metal tags with custom numbers. E. g., white tags might hold numbers defined for additional trees of the SP5 subproject. --- 6 digit metal tags starting with 3 were also used for woody debris items

Allometrie
Definition:
"allo" indicates that the items (rows) belong to a larger object (same CWD_ID). Together they can be used as allometries for the estimation of other objects. This means, that for example a broken crown is measured with all branches. These branches should be added up to a crown volume and then other crowns can use this estimate, even if only their basal diameter is measured and not all branches.; Datagroup description: Allometries for estimating biomass functions from basal diameter measurements.

how can this have a dbh if it belongs to the previous standing trunk?

dtop was 1.1, but that does not make sense, assume that 1.1 is height
how can this have a dbh, if it is broken at 40 cm?
changed pos.af from 8 to 9, since the following entries did not have decay class, species etc, looks like a complete branch measured
