Title: Microhabitat at small mammal trapping stations on Hog Island, VA in 1991
Alternate Identifier: VCR13210
Alternate Identifier: 10.6073/pasta/e8df61374c67460b32cb413b0a2ad3a3
Abstract:

Measurements of the habitat (within 2 meters) of trapping stations on Hog Island were made in the spring of 1991. These measurements included the percent cover, height and dominant vegetation at each site. Note: this is a very dynamic island, so significant changes in habitat occurred within a few years of collection of this data.

Methods and Protocols

These methods, instrumentation and/or protocols apply to all data in this dataset:

Protocols and/or Procedures
Description:

This section contains specific methods for this dataset.

Measurements were taken at each trapping site along transect T1, T2, T4 and T5. Measurements reflect the area within 2 meters of the trap site.

These methods, instrumentation, and/or protocols apply to the data table VCR13210_1:

These methods, instrumentation and/or protocols apply to the data table column: Station number (STATION)
Protocols and/or Procedures
Description:

Stations are located every 12.5 meters along each transect. Lowest numbered stations are near the beach.

These methods, instrumentation and/or protocols apply to the data table column: Percent vegetation cover (PERCENT_COVER)
Protocols and/or Procedures
Description:

Visually estimated vegetation cover of both primary and secondary cover species

These methods, instrumentation and/or protocols apply to the data table column: Depth of water above ground (WATER_DEPTH)
Protocols and/or Procedures
Description:

Where there was standing water within 2-meters of the trap station, its depth was measured.
