Habitat, vegetation, tree and soil data from Native Pinewoods in Scotland, 1971

A set of data arising from a detailed ecological survey of the native Scots Pine woodland habitats within Scotland. In all, 27 woods from throughout Scotland were identified as the major remaining native pinewoods, and within each wood 16 randomly selected 200m2 plots were surveyed (26 of the woods were surveyed in 1971, with 1 extra wood surveyed in 1972). Details about the trees, ground flora, soil, habitat types as well as general plot information were collected for each plot using standardized procedures and coding systems. The survey was carried out by the Nature Conservancy, a forerunner of the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology.

Provenance & quality

Data from a detailed ecological survey of the Scots Pine woodland habitats within Britain, undertaken in 1971/72. In all, 27 woods from throughout Scotland were identified as the major remaining native pinewoods, and within each wood 16 randomly selected 200m2 plots were surveyed (26 of the woods were surveyed in 1971, with 1 extra wood surveyed in 1972). Details about the trees, ground flora, soil, habitat types as well as general plot information were collected for each plot using standardized procedures and coding systems. The data are managed by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology at Lancaster.
