Abstract: The Ecuador Forest Plots Database (GIVD ID SA-EC-001) contains permanent plot data (tree species composition and environmental data) from different ecoregions in Ecuador (i.e. from tropical lowland to upper montane forests, tropical dry forest). The permanent plots have been established to study forest structure and tree species composition along environmental gradients.
