December 7, 2012 PLD Plot Data Day

The following documentation presented to you by: Nick Darst, Todd Harney, Kolaan Busbice, and Matty Gillan.

In order to reduce redundancy, see post titled Himalayan Blackberry Control Experiment by Kolaan Busbice for a detailed description of the day.
Dr. Caroline Christian with the pregame speech to pump up the team of restorationists.  Apparently a few did not have their coffee that morning. 

Going over materials before setting out for data collection.

In order to get consistent data everyone needed to be on the same page from the get-go

Watch out for the bike!
The materials for the day. Each group was given clipboard with appropriate data sheets,  tape measure, flags, a compass, a densiometer, a three-meter pvc equipped with a meter tape, and some skotch tape.
Ingenuity at its finest.
After initial data was collected, the treatment of clipping was applied.

A fully clipped plot.
The bloggers diligently bringing you this here information.
Meanwhile, a little more south of our study site, one student was acting as an exotic (maybe invasive?) species.
