Woody riparian vegetation was cut in watershed N2B in winter 2010 for 30 m on each side of the stream channel. These vegetation surveys are from before and after removal. The treatments are naturally open (grassland), woody riparian removed, and re-planted after woody riparian removed.
There were twelve plots (we numbered them 1-12) in our data, we used 4 transects in each plot (numbered 1-4),
with 4 subplots on each transect (numbered by their distance along the transect).
Four of the twelve plots were open prairie before the removal and were sampled as a benchmark or "control,"
four plots had woody vegetation removed only, and four plots had woody vegetation removed AND were seeded.
