The sample consists of 24 campsites that vary in how frequently they are used and in the vegetation type in which they are located. Measured data include plant species found as well as percent cover of vegetation, litter, bare soil, rock, and cryptogams. Physical soil properties such as bulk density, infiltration rate and soil moisture were also measured in 1984.
