Habitat, vegetation, soil, tree and regeneration data from native pinewoods in Scotland, 1973

This is a set of data arising from a detailed ecological survey of plots within a selected number of native Scots Pine woodlands within Scotland. Details about the trees, ground flora, soil, habitat types as well as general plot information were collected for each plot using standardised procedures and coding systems. Additionally, regeneration data were collected from each site. In all, 7 woods from throughout Scotland were identified for survey; these were a subset of 27 pinewoods surveyed previously using similar methods, in 1971. The survey was carried out in 1973 by the Nature Conservancy, a forerunner of the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology.
