2) To determine the impact of intensive forest cutting within a compartment on herbaceous plant and songbird diversity.
Allegheny National Forest, PA.
5 stands were clear-cut, 17 stands were uncut, and 15 stands were partially cut.
5 stands were clear-cut, 17 stands were uncut, and 15 stands were partially cut during 1990.
Regeneration herbaceous, and songbird sampling follow Warren Research Work Unit standard protocols.
Tree species by height class and herbaceous cover. 1988/89, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1999.
Data are proofed after field collection and data entry. Data collection supervised by permanent employees.
Raw data by plot reside on DG and tally sheets are kept with written instructions and detailed maps to each stand. Annually, the raw data are transformed using the REGEN1 program in DG Info. System. Summarized data by plot and by stand reside in a DG-based program that can output to ASCII text files.
