GIS50 Coverages Defining the Konza Producer Data Sample Locations (1982-present)

Summary

Short name: 

GIS50

Abstract: 

These data show the sample locations for datasets pertaining to primary production at Konza Prairie. These data reference various treatments across Konza including varying burn frequencies, belowground plots, patch burn, exclosures, etc. Record type one (GIS500) contains sample locations for estimated standing crop biomass in various burning-grazing treatments (PABXX). Record type six (GIS505) contains sample locations for peak foliage biomass, and belowground species composition measured at the belowground plot experiments (PBB0X and BGPVC respectively). Record type 11 and 12 contain the transect (GIS510) and plot (GIS511) locations for plots in the patch-burn experiments (PBGXX). Record type 16 (GIS515) contains the locations of exclosures used to sample primary productivity in bison grazed watersheds (PEB01). Record type 21 (GIS520) contains the locations of exclosures used to sample primary productivity in cattle grazed watersheds (PEB01_X). Record type 26 (GIS525) contains the locations of sample sites for litterfall (PGLXX) collectors in the gallery forest. Record type 31 (GIS530) contains species composition transects for Konza Prairie. These data may be used in conjunction species composition (PVC01 and PVC02), primary production in grazing exclosures (PEB01, PEB01_X), soil chemistry and bulk density (NSC01) and primary production (PAB01).

These data are available to download as zipped shapefiles (.zip), compressed Google Earth KML layers (.kmz), and associated EML metadata (.xml).

Data sources: 

GIS500: Aboveground primary production on fire frequency treatments - Aboveground primary production on fire frequency treatments: Estimates of standing crop biomass (grams per square meter) of live graminoids, forbs, woody plants, and previous year's dead vegetation for 2 soil types (shallow and deep) and various burning-grazing treatments are made at the coordinates contained in this dataset. This data may be used in conjunction with the Aboveground primary production on fire frequency treatments (PABXX) datasets for spatially explicit analyses of these data.

GIS505: Aboveground biomass on belowground plots -  Aboveground biomass on belowground plots: Peak foliage biomass is measured annually in late summer on the 64 belowground plots which are represented here. This data may be used in conjunction with Aboveground biomass on belowground plots (PBBXX) datasets for spatially explicit analyses of these data.

GIS510: Vegetation changes from patch burning grazed pastures, sampling transects: Canopy cover was recorded in 20 circular 10 m2 plots in pastures seasonally grazed by cattle. Each unit consisted of three pastures, one which was burned and two that were not burned. The burn was rotated so that each pasture was burned every third year. The three pasture unit was stocked with cow/calf pairs from approximately 1 May until 1 Oct at a stocking density equal to 3.2 ha per cow/calf. This dataset contains the transects which intersect the 10 m2 plots.

GIS511: Vegetation changes from patch burning grazed pastures, sampling plots: Canopy cover was recorded in 20 circular 10 m2 plots in pastures seasonally grazed by cattle. Each unit consisted of three pastures, one which was burned and two that were not burned. The burn was rotated so that each pasture was burned every third year. The three pasture unit was stocked with cow/calf pairs from approximately 1 May until 1 Oct at a stocking density equal to 3.2 ha per cow/calf. This dataset represents the plots.

GIS515: Primary Production in Grazing Exclosures: To determine long term effects of bison grazing on aboveground primary production. This dataset represents the exclosures in which the data is collected.

GIS520: Primary Production in Cattle Grazing Exclosures: To determine long term effects of cattle grazing on aboveground primary production. This dataset represents the exclosures in which the data is collected. This data may be used in conjunction with the ***Primary Production in Cattle Grazing Exclosures (PEB_X)**** datasets for spatially explicit analyses of these data.

GIS525: Gallery Forest Litterfall: Litterfall of a Kansas gallery forest is measured with 60, deep-dish litterfall collecters. This data set contains the locations of the collectors. This data may be used in conjunction with the Gallery forest litterfall (PGLXX) datasets for spatially explicit analyses of these data.

GIS530: Konza plant species transects: Contains species composition transects for Konza Prairie Biological Station. Locations of permenant line transects were recorded using GPS and converted to an Arc/Info coverage. Transects are attributed with watershed and transect ID information. This cover may be used in conjunction with KPBS species composition (PVC01 and PVC02), Primary production in grazing exclosures (PEB01, PEB01_X), Soil chemistry and bulk density (NSC01) and primary production (PAB01-PAB04) datasets for spatially explicit analyses of these data
