Shrub layer biological observation data: tree number, height, coverage, life form, aboveground biomass, underground biomass

Herb layer biological observation data: tree (strain) number, average height, coverage, life type, aboveground biomass, underground biomass

Leaf area index: tree layer leaf area index, shrub layer leaf area index, grass layer leaf area index

Soil organic matter and nutrients: soil organic matter, total nitrogen, total phosphorus, total potassium, nitrate nitrogen, ammonium nitrogen, available nitrogen (alkali-hydrolysable nitrogen), available phosphorus, available potassium, slowly available potassium, PH value in aqueous solution
