1800's Presettlement Vegetation of GLBRC and LTER sites
Vegetation from the early 1800’s (presettlement) of the LTER and GLBRC experiment areas was extracted from GIS data layers that were created from initial Michigan surveyors notes. Presettlement vegetation metadata is available for Michigan .
This datatable is part of the History of research sites including earlier vegetation types dataset. Information about earlier vegetation, farming, etc.
