The latest data package released from ForestPlots.net makes available tree-by-tree diameter and floristic data from 91 samples of 0.1-ha each, in community and protected lands in eastern Madre de Dios, in Amazonian Peru.
Data were collected by a team of Peruvian botanists and assistants, in a collaboration between the University of Leeds, the Universidad Nacional San Antonio Abad del Cusco, and the Instituto de Investigaciones de la Amazonia Peruana. This work was part of a project funded by the U.K. Department for International Development.
Fieldwork was conducted in 1998 and 1999 and represents the first coordinated contribution to the international RAINFOR consortium.
