Qilian Mountain comprehensive observation network: Plant diversity monitoring in Qilian Mountain (plant survey data - 2018)
Data file naming method and usage:
The data file is an excel file (.xlsx format), the herbal sample data is placed in the “herbal sample” table, the shrub sample data is placed in the “shrub sample side” table, and the arbor sample data is placed in the “arbor sample” table.
Description of the data table header:
