Abundance of vascular plants measured using point intercept frequency in herbivore exclosures and control plots in snowbeds on the Varanger peninsula.

The dataset includes three different types of files and all files (except the readme) are saved as ;-separated txt-files:

  • One data file per year (_YEAR.txt)

  • One coordinate file with coordinates of all sites included in the dataset (_coordinates.txt)

  • One auxiliary file with information about which sites are included in the dataset and when (_aux.txt)

  • One readme file with additional information about the variables included in the study design (_readme.pdf)

The data is not publicly available yet.
