Victorian Tall Eucalypt Forest Plot Network: Plot Details - Spatial Coordinates, Central Highlands of Victoria, Australia

The Victorian Tall Eucalypt Forest Plot Network Plot Details - Spatial Coordinates data package contains location data for 163 permanent 3 hectare plots in the Central Highlands of Victoria, Australia. This is part of a much larger dataset that spans from 1983, when the Victorian Tall Eucalypt Forest Plot Network research plots commenced. A synopsis of related data packages which have been collected as part of the Victorian Tall Eucalypt Forest Plot Network's full program is provided at http://doi.org/10.25911/5c4445118125d. Sampling method: Each long term monitoring site is 3 hectares. Study extent: Each long term monitoring site is 3 hectares, with monitoring occurring only on the central hectare which is usually square, measuring 100 x 100 m or occasionally sites measuring 200 x 50 m where they interface gullies. Project funding: Between 2012 and 2018 this project was part of, and funded through the Long Term Ecological Research Network (LTERN) a facility within the Terrestrial Ecosystem Research Network (TERN) and supported by the Australian Government through the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy.

Plot set-up
The Victorian Tall Eucalypt Forest Plot Network Plot Details - Spatial Coordinates contains location data for 163 permanent 3 hectare plots in the Central Highlands of Victoria, Australia. At these plots surveys of carbon, vegetation, birds and arboreal marsupials are surveyed and data collected are provided in a series of related data packages.
We use handheld Garmin GPS units. The original site location was also determined using a Trimble GPS unit.

Access Rights
To mitigate risks associated with threatened species, LTERN's policy is to mediate access to spatial data. Data users must therefore request permission from the Data Provider before access to latitudinal and longitudinal data is granted. A summary of the proposed research and intended use, or research abstract is required when access to restricted data is requested. Co-authorship with the data provider (Professor David Lindenmayer) of any publications of research utilising this data is a requirement to access to this data.
