LTER_EU_IT_025: Vegetation monitoring by nested plots

The dataset contains vegetation frequency, abundance and cover collected in two mountains of the Velino-Duchessa massif along an altitudinal gradient (from 1800 to 2400 m a.s.l.). 165 nested plots were established from 2005 with the following increasing dimensions: 1x1, 2x2, 4x4, 8x8 and 16x16 (meters). The plots are re-surveyed every 10 years.
