Private Leaf Area Index Data, Cumberland Plain SuperSite, Core 1 ha, 2015
Boer
University of Western Sydney
Leaf area index (LAI) can be defined as the total one sided area of leaf tissue per unit area of ground and is a key derived parameter that is associated with water and light interception, radiation transfer, water and carbon exchange. Canopy cover can be defined as the fraction of ground shaded by the vertical projection of tree crowns. These measures may be used as proxies for actual canopy leaf area. Leaf area index is the preferred measure of cover for vegetation and is a key variable used in total biomass estimation and in carbon cycling prediction models. Indirect measures of LAI include digital photographic methods using flat or hemispherical images, referred to respectively as Digital Cover Photography (DCP) and (Digital Hemispheric Photography (DHP). LAI measurements are carried out at each SuperSite using the most appropriate method for the vegetation type present. Digital Cover Photography (DCP) was carried out at the Cumberland Plain SuperSite, Core 1 ha on 10 March 2015. The protocol generally followed the SuperSite Vegetation Monitoring protocol (http://www.supersites.net.au/publications-and-resources/resources-for-supersiteusers) using the Digital Canopy Photography method except photo points were located at 5 m intervals along the 10 Gentry Transects (11 photos per transect). Leaf Area Index images are available for viewing and download from the TERN SuperSites BioImage Portal http://bioimages.supersites.net.au/data/lai/cblp/default

Following the general SuperSite Monitoring protocol (Annexure 1, TERN Australian SuperSite Network, NCRIS-2013 Monitoring Protocols, NCRIS-2013 Annexure1 Ver1_1_4.pdf) digital canopy photos were taken. Photopoints were located at 10 m intervals along the 10 Gentry Transects (11 photos per transect).
