Environmental change network core measurements at Alice Holt Forest – vegetation

Baseline survey data (once only)

300 systematical chosen plots (2m x 2m) covering the whole site. Species presence recorded then related to National Vegetation Classification (NVC).



Coarse-grain (every nine years)

50 randomly chosen plots from the original baseline survey:

  • Altitude
  • Aspect
  • Slope form
  • Land use
  • Biotic effects
  • Species presence
  • Seedling counts
  • Tree growth (height and diameter)
  • Stand structure
  • Linear features


Fine grain (every three years)

50 plots located randomly within the NVC identified by the base line survey:

  • Species presence
  • Physical features
  • Biotic features
