Download blank plot-sheets or request plot-sheets pre-populated with existing data.
The National Vegetation Survey Databank (NVS) provides plot sheet templates for many of the methods for which data are stored in NVS. For specific studies these can be pre-populated with data from previous sampling efforts to help with in-field data verification during data recording. Field data collection protocols are described in our extensive set of field data collection manuals.
