Plot Data Access Form

University of California Santa Cruz - Forest Ecology Research Plot



The 6-hectare UCSC Forest Ecology Research Plot was established in 2007 in the Mediterranean-climate, mixed-evergreen forest of the UC Santa Cruz Campus Natural Reserve. All free-standing woody stems at least 10 mm diameter at breast height were identified, tagged, and mapped. The FERP is maintained as a research and teaching resource at UCSC. Additional monitoring data are available at http://ferp.ucsc.edu or on request from the PI. See
Gilbert et al. 2007. Journal of Vegetation Science 21: 388-405 for a description of the FERP.


Data from the UCSC-FERP are available for download upon submission of a request for data access proposal.
