Environmental Data Initiative data package in the LTER Network Data Portal
In seven major U.S. metropolitan cities (Boston, Baltimore, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, St. Paul, Salt Lake City, and Phoenix), 1m^2 plots were sampled in residential front and backyards, as well as nearby natural areas, in order to evaluate the plant community composition, diversity, and percent cover of plant species. In addition, in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City, full yard plant communities were also sampled for a plant community of the entire yard.
