Basal Cover of Perennial Grasses and Canopy Cover of Shrubs at Permanent Quadrat Locations on the Jornada Experimental Range, 1915-2006

William Chapline, Kris Havstad & Brandon Bestelmeyer
This ongoing data set contains basal cover of perennial grasses and canopy cover of shrubs in 122 1m x 1m quadrats on the Jornada Experimental Range in the northern extent of the Chihuahuan Desert of New Mexico, USA. These quadrats were established to investigate livestock grazing effects on plant community dynamics as well as responses to variable climatic conditions over time. Vegetation monitoring is carried out by charting the basal areas of perennial grasses and...
