Pepperwood Vegetation Mapping & Monitoring

TBC3 has initiated what we anticipate will be a long-term field based measurement system to detect and evaluate habitats in transition at Pepperwood Preserve. The initial project goals consist of (1) Vegetation map development at Pepperwood as a baseline to evaluate habitat structure and vegetation distributions, (2) Establishment of permanent plots to test key hypotheses relating to spatial patterns, responses to short term variability, and the long-term effects of climate change on biodiversity. Siting and surveying of plots will begin in fall, 2012.
