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.
This document is an excel file with four separate worksheets each representing one forest location (i.e., Adelle, Demaro, Odo bulu, and Rira). Each worksheet has the basal area factor prism value used to collect the data (20) as well as the number of prism plots collected at each specific location. Each record represents an individual tree. The columns in each worksheet include Date, Plot #, Subplot, tree #, and species. Date provides the date the data were collected, Plot# list the plot name of the tree measured. Subplot is one of the five subplots associated with each plot representing C (center), N(North), W (West), S(South), and E(East). Tree # lists tree number specific to each subplot. Species lists the species name as a two letter code representing the first two letters of the scientific name (include genus and species). Finally, dhb (cm) includes the diameter at breast height for each tree species in centimeters
