Yosemite National Park, California. Exfoliating granite on Lower Quarter Dome. This rock mass originally had angular edges and a sharp point, but these are now largely transformed into smooth curves of exfoliation. Circa 1913. Plate 48-C, U.S. Geological Survey Professional paper 160.

This dataset was used to summarize and analyze the mortality factors recorderd on dead trees in the Sierra Nevada Forest Dynamics Plot Network, which is managed by the Sequoia and Kings Canyon Field station of the U.S. Geological Survey's Western Ecological Research Center. Each row of the dataset represents an individual dead tree. These are dead trees that were recorded in the network from 1998 to 2010 for the subset of plots as described in the associated manuscript; Das, A.J., Stephenson, N.L., Davis, K.P. 2016. Why do trees die? Characterizing the drivers of background tree mortality. Ecology. 97(10): 2616-2627, http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/ecy.1497
