Tree spatial pattern in Beau Poirier plot, Haye forest, France

Description

Spatial pattern of 162 beeches, 72 oaks and 3 hornbeams in a 1-ha 140 yr-old temperate forest plot in Haye, France.

Usage

data(BPoirier)

Format

A list with 8 components:
$rect is a vector of coordinates (xmin,ymin,xmax,ymax) of the origin and the opposite corner of a 110 by 90 m rectangular plot.
$tri1 is a list of vertex coordinates (ax,ay,bx,by,cx,cy) of contiguous triangles covering the denser part of the plot.
$tri2 is a list of vertex coordinates (ax,ay,bx,by,cx,cy) of contiguous triangles covering the sparser part of the plot.
$poly1 is a list of vertex coordinates (x,y) of the polygon enclosing BPoirier$tri1.
$poly2 is a list of two polygons vertex coordinates (x,y) enclosing BPoirier$tri2.
$trees is a list of tree coordinates (x,y).
$species is a factor with 3 levels ("beech","oak","hornbeam") corresponding to species names of the trees.
$dbh is a vector of tree size (diameter at breast height in cm).
