Brief DescriptionThese rainforest tree data packages comprise stand structure and demographic data for rainforest trees in the Connell Rainforest Plots network at O'Reilly's Plot, Lamington National Park, 84 km south of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

Rainforest tree attributes recorded comprise the size (height or girth) of tagged and mapped, free-standing stems of shrub and tree species. All size classes from tiny seedlings to large canopy trees are included in the monintoring.

The plots were initiated by Professor Joseph H. Connell (University of California, Santa Barbara) in 1963, and sampling has been conducted at intervals of 1-6 years since then.

Project: Long term demographic monitoring of rainforest trees to improve our understanding of the mechanisms that maintain diversity in complex, species rich tropical and subtropical rainforests.

Title: Rainforest tree data packages comprising stand structure data for rainforest trees at the O'Reilly's Connell Plot, Lamington National Park (84 km south of Brisbane, Queensland).

Abstract: These rainforest tree data packages comprise stand structure and demographic data for rainforest trees at sites in the Connell Rainforest Plots network, one at Davies Creek in Dinden National Park, (25 km south west of Cairns), and one near O'Reilly's guest house in Lamington National Park (84 km south of Brisbane), Queensland. Rainforest tree attributes recorded comprise the size (height or girth) of tagged and mapped, free-standing stems of shrub and tree species. All size classes from tiny seedlings to large canopy trees are included in the monintoring. The plots were initiated by Professor Joseph H. Connell (University of California, Santa Barbara) in 1963, and sampling has been conducted at intervals of 1-6 years since then.

Funding: Research on these plots was funded by competitive grants from the National Science Foundation (USA) from 1963-2003.

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.
