LBA-ECO ND-02 Secondary Forest Tree Heights and Diameters, Para, Brazil: 1999-2005

This data set provides tree diameters and heights measured from 1999 to 2005 in plots of a secondary-growth forest fertilization experiment located 6.5-km northwest of the town of Paragominas, Para, Brazil. In the 6-year old secondary-growth forest, all trees greater than 2 cm diameter at breast height (DBH) were tagged, identified, and measured for diameter and height in November 1999. Fertilizer was applied to selected plots in January 2000 and February 2001. Tree heights and diameters were remeasured in May 2000, June 2001, July 2002, July 2004, and July 2005. All data are provided in a single comma-separated file.The site was divided into three blocks, with four treatment plots (each 20m x 20m) located in each block (3 reps x 4 treatments = 12 plots). Three of the twelve plots were fertilized with nitrogen (100 kg N/ha as urea); three were fertilized with phosphorus (50 kg P/ha as superphosphate); three were fertilized with both nitrogen and phosphorus. The remaining three plots were not fertilized and served as the experimental control..
