Summary

This collection of geospatial datasets includes 16 point feature class files and associated FGDC-compliant metadata representing data collected in 2012 and 2013 as part of a study of the hydrology and soil biology of limestone cedar glades. Data was collected at quadrat locations within 12 study glades at Stones River National Battlefield outside Murfreesboro, Tennessee. The ground surface was characterized by assessing quadrat percentages of gravel, cobbles, flagstones, bare soil, exposed bedrock, graminoids, forbs, shrubs, trees, lichens, and Nostoc cyanobacteria. Canopy coverage was estimated using zonal analysis of digital photographs. Observations of soil water content were made using portable time-domain reflectometry (TDR) probes [...]
