Guyadiv: a forest inventories network in French Guiana since 1986

Guyadiv is a network of permanent forest plots installed over the years in French Guiana. In these plots, all trees above 10 cm dbh are identified, measured and mapped. Several plots are part of permanent research stations (Paracou, Nouragues, Piste Saint Elie). The diversity of arborescent species flora is studied (floristic list). This flora diversity depends on the forest vegetation (architecture, structure, biomass, dynamic in the long term, dynamic after perturbation and biogeography) which is also studied. The contribution of flora diversity to forest vegetation (carbon cycle issue...) is another topic approach in the studies. Analyses are conducted at different spatial scales (local - intra site, regional, subcontinental via ATDN network) and temporal scale (impact of logging, impact of old settlements : COUAC project). We only have the point coordinates and not the precise demarcation for most of the sample plots. In order to calculate the bounding box for these plots, we have…
