Methods
Life forms: trees
Site area: 1.200
Sampling methods: line transect
Sample size: 172
Minimum size: 15.0cm dbh
Sampling comments: "Four linear transects 1000 m long and running north, east, south and west were established in each site radiating from a point approximating the centre of the site. Four plots each measuring 25 m x 30 m were established at 225 m intervals on alternate sides of each transect. The total area sampled at each site was 1.2 ha giving a total sample area of 7.2 ha" (p. 101); counts may or may not include smaller size classes counted in nested subplots
