This data set includes tables providing location, environmental, vegetation, soils, and carbon sampling data collected in 2015 and 2016 at vegetation sampling units on restored areas and other habitats at sites in northeast Indiana, USA. "Sample_units.txt" provides location, environmental, soil physical and chemical properties for each sample location. "Subplot_ground_flora.txt" provides subplot estimates of cover for each ground flora species in each each subplot; "Plot_ground_flora.txt" provides plot-level estimates of cover for each ground flora species in each plot. "Woody_stems.txt" provides diameter at breast height measurements and height estimates for woody species with measurable diameters at 1.4 m. "Downed_wood_less_than_3_in_diameter.txt" provides tallies of intercepts of small diameter downed wood along portions of 2 50 foot transects at each plot; "Downed_wood_greater_than_3_in_diameter.txt" records species, diameter and length of downed woody stems greater than 3 in diameter along the entire transects.
