Data on birds and habitat associated with forest management on public conservation areas in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley

View Article: PubMed Central - PubMed

ABSTRACT

This data article contains data collected from 2006–2012 in forests located on 31 State or Federal conservation lands in or adjacent to the Mississippi Alluvial Valley. We present the location, treatment type, and silvicultural age of data collection locations. Presented data on bird detections and forest habitat were collected during avian point counts and associated forest habitat plots and linked to the publication (D.J. Twedt and R.R. Wilson, 2017) [5].

No MeSH data available.

f0015: Field data form used to record habitat conditions within 10 BAF (square feet/acre basal area factor) prism plots that were associated with avian point counts in the Mississippi Alluvial Valley, 2006–2012.

Mentions: Using variable radius plots based on a 10 (square feet/acre) basal area factor (BAF) prism [1], we assessed habitat at two plots associated with each bird survey location: 1 plot at the point and another at approximately 100 m from the point, except in 2006 when only a single plot was sampled. At each habitat plot, we recorded data using a standard field data collection form (Fig. 3) to record habitat (Table 2) including the species and diameter at breast height of each tree within the 10 BAF plot within four size classes: (10–<25 cm, 25–<50 cm, 50–76 and >50 cm, and >76 cm). We also recorded visually discernable cover on an ordinal scale (1=none, 2=sparse, 3=moderate, or 4=heavy) for: vines and cane at 0, >0 <25, 25–50, >50%; understory (<3 m in height) and midstory (3–9 m) at 0, >0 <25, 25–60, >60%; and overstory canopy (>9 m) at 0, >0, <50, 50–80, >80% (Supplementary Table 3).
