Forest inventories on circular plots on the expedition Chukotka 2018, NE Russia


We undertook a large-scale forest inventory in central Chukotka in summer 2018 on a joint Russian-German expedition by the AWI (Potsdam) and the NEFU (Yakutsk). We covered different densities of larch forest plots accross the tundra-taiga gradient.Tree height estitmations were conducted after training with a clinometer (SUUNTO, Finland) for trees present on 22 sites inventoriziong all trees (N=2624) on 15 m radial plots.

We acknowledge funding by the ERC consolidator grant Glacial Legacy of Ulrike Herzschuh (see Additional Funding).
