Canopy Species and Height — GLBRC Scale-up Experiment
The composition and cover of canopy-forming plants is measured in switchgrass, restored prairie, and reference fields at Lux Arbor Reserve and Marshall Farm using the line-point intercept method. The first plant species intercepted vertically and its height is recorded every 5 meters along four NS transects stretching the full length of each field.
This datatable is part of the GLBRC Scale-up Experiment Cropping Systems dataset.
This dataset contains data on plant communities in fields at Lux Arbor Reserve (L1-L3) and Marshall Farm (M1-M4) planted to corn (L1, M1), switchgrass (L2, M3), and restored prairie (L3, M2) in 2010 after a 2009 no-till soybean crop in all fields to convert tilled corn-soybean-wheat rotations (AGR) at Lux Arbor and fields in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) at Marshall Farm to no-till bioenergy crops. One field at Marshall Farm (M4) remains as CRP brome grass to serve as a reference. Each field has 10 sampling stations (S1-S10) around which most sampling occurs.
