  • In 2006, to obtain a measure of pinon and juniper biomass in the Cerro Montosa area, belt transects were superimposed on transects along which understory net primary producitivy (NPP) is sampled. All trees rooted within 5 m to the north of each belt were tagged, although some shorter belts exist on which all trees within 5 m to either the north or south were tagged. The height of each tagged tree was measured, as was the diameter-at root-crown (DRC). Crown diameters both parallel and perpendicular to the belt transect were also measured.  Trees were re-measured in 2007, 2008, and 2009.
