Geography
Country: United States
State: California

Coordinate: 37° 45' N, 122° 33' W
Basis of coordinate: stated in text
Climate and habitat
Habitat: temperate broadleaf/mixed forest
Substrate: ground surface
WMT: 17.1
CMT: 9.7
MAP: 776.0
Methods
Life forms: trees
Sites: 1
Site area: 6.000
Sampling methods: quadrat
Sample size: 3623
Minimum size: 5.0cm dbh
Sampling comments: Although authors report the numer of wooded species for 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 30, and 60cm DBH (see Table 1, p. 395), here only those bigger than 5 cm DMH are included.
JA: total basal area down to 1 cm dbh is 47.3 m2/ha and 97% of that applies to the 10 cm+ dbh class, but no figure is given for the 5 cm+ dbh class
