Supplementary Data Sample Plot Inventory Sihlwald

Supplementary Data Sample Plot Inventory Sihlwald

The Sihlwald is one of the largest contiguous beech forests in the Swiss Plateau region. In the year 2000, timber harvesting was abandoned. Since 2007 the forest has been under strict protection as a natural forest reserve on an area of 1098 ha and since 2008 as a cantonal nature and landscape conservation area (SVO Sihlwald). Since 2010, it carries the national label ‘Nature discovery park’ (‘Naturerlebnispark’). As part of the national monitoring in nature forest reserves, a sampling inventory (calipering threshold of 7 cm) with 226 plots on an area of 917 ha was carried out in the Sihlwald in autumn and early winter 2017. The aim was to describe the state and development of the forest structure and make comparisons with earlier sampling inventories in the same area from 1981, 1989 and 2003. This dataset contains supplementary tables for the publication by Brändli et al. (2020). The metadata file describes the structure of the tables.
