A spatio-temporal dataset of forest mensuration for the analysis of tree species structure and diversity in semi-natural mixed floodplain forests

We performed replicated, repeated measures of height, diameter and vitality at tree level to allow analysis of spatial and temporal structure and diversity in a semi-natural-mixed floodplain forest in Italy. Three inventories were performed in 1995, 2005 and 2016 in three ~‚ÄČ1 ha plots with varying soil moisture regimes. The use of replicated, repeated measures data rather than chronosequences allows the examination of true changes in spatial pattern processes through time in this forest type.
