Area The extent of a 2-dimensional surface enclosed within a boundary.

Sample area The normal dimensions for secondary and tertiary sites are 50 x 10m2 = 500 m². This is the area were species lists and cover measures are estimated for.

Stem density area Default value is 500 m², although this may be varied for strata depending on the density of stems. For example, for widely spaced trees it is generally 500 m², but may be smaller for lower strata where there is a higher stem density of shrubs.
