Abstract

Raw field data collected in the Garner Run study area, including measures of vegetation, soil organic layer, and rock cover. Vegetation measurements include tree species and size, understory vegetation, and ground cover. Soil organic layer measurements include O horizon and coarse woody debris. Rock cover measurements include percent rock cover and size of rocks. Measurements were taken along four transects 700 – 1400 m long that run parallel to the contour. Transect locations are as follows: Leading Ridge midslope, Tussey Ridge ridge top, Tussey Ridge midslope, Tussey Ridge valley bottom.
