Dataset Abstract:

The influence of termite mounds on plant biomass and species composition in different land uses: This project aims to quantify the effect of epigeic termite mounds on aboveground plant biomass in different land uses. Termite mounds were mapped in areas of pasture, secondary forest, and agrosilvicultural and agrosilvopastoral systems. Their abundance and percent coverage were compared between land uses. Plant biomass on and off mounds were compared in each land use, as well as species composition. Data Quality Statement: The Data Center has determined that this data set has missing or incomplete data, metadata, or other documentation resulting in diminished usability of this product. User beware. Known problems: Data were a product of a student\'s thesis. No supporting documentation to describe the data fields contained in the Excel spreadsheet provided. Column headings and text fields within the data file are in Portuguese.
