Contact: ================================================ Dataset ================================================ 1) TLS vertical plant profiles Dassenbos. Five-year dynamics of forest structure for the four sampling locations in Dassenbos. Data were collected using the same measurement protocol and data analysis using as described in Calders et al. (2015) using a zenith range of 35-70 degrees for 184-186 (some scans were discarded for quality purposes) measurement days during the period from February 2014 to November 2018. The data repository contains the vertical plant profiles and plotting code (Fig 1 in paper) 2) One-year dynamics of vegetation structure for a tropical savanna site in Northern Australia (Fig 2 in paper) and Wytham Woods (Fig 3 in paper). The data repository contains the vertical plant profiles derived from LEAF data and plotting code.
