Macquarie Island Vegetation: Plant species coverage in field plots, determined from photo interpretation
Entry ID: Macquarie_Island_Vegetation_photo_interpretation

Abstract: This dataset is a spreadsheet containing plant species coverage for the canopies of vegetation plots on Macquarie Island in the summers of 2008/09 and 2009/10. It was collected as part of AAS 3095, for Phillippa Bricher's PhD thesis.

350 sites were chosen using a proportional stratified random sampling protocol. We stratified Macquarie Island into seven relatively homogeneous landform classes ... View entire text

Quality Cover classes were all assigned and extensively checked by Phillippa Bricher. However, the technique likely results in the number of species per plot being under-reported, especially for species commonly found beneath the canopy. The photographs cover approximately half the area of the plot, and 400 point observations are taken of those photographs. Rare or sub-canopy species are frequently ... View entire text
