Description:
Abstract:
This data set shows the location of dune exclosures that were still in place in 2001 on Assateague Island National Seashore from the 1996 exclosure project.
Purpose:
The purpose of this data set is to identify the location of the remaining dune exclosure sites in 2001 on Assateague Island National Seashore for bilological research and resource management.
Supplemental_Information:
There is also dune exclosure data for 1996, as well as forest and marsh exclosure data from other time periods.
