Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
Soil samples were collected within ten plots in three old-growth forests (mature) and 13 second-growth forests at different ages. The data presented in the file are the mean content of soil properties of each forest studied. Abbreviations: area_number = ID or number of the fragment; stage = successional stage of the fragment; ph = pH H2O; Al_trocavel = Exchangeable Al (cmolc kg-1); Ca_Mg = Exchangeable Ca+Mg (cmolc kg-1); P_ppm = Available P (mg kg-1); K_cmolc = Exchangeable K (cmolc kg-1)
