Brief description

The Cape Tribulation Crane 1 ha rainforest plot at the Daintree Rainforest Observatory is situated on the lowlands in Far North Queensland, just south of Cape Tribulation. It is associated with the TERN FNQ Rainforest SuperSite. A vascular plant census were carried out in mid 2010. All data for stems ≥ 10cm DBH can be found in the DBH stem dataset. The data is being used as baseline data set to assist in tracking changes in biomass in the rainforest.
