1800's Presettlement Vegetation of GLBRC and LTER sites
Vegetation of the early 1800’s (presettlement) of the LTER and GLBRC experiment areas was extracted from GIS data layers that were created from initial surveyors notes from Michigan and Wisconsin. Presettlement vegetation metadata is available for Michigan and Wisconsin .
This datatable is part of the Research Site History dataset. Information about earlier vegetation, farming, etc.
