Usage Considerations or Constraints Data represent annual plant community composition surveyed mid-growing season. Vascular plants are identified to species level while cryptogams are identified to broad taxonomic groups (e.g. brown moss, lichens). Percent cover and height are estimated by Plant Form (e.g. forb, graminoid, dwarf shrub, etc.), and do not represent cover or height of individual species within a quadrat.
