Abstract

Density and growth of Olyra latifolia L. and Taquara micrantha (Kunth) I.L.C. Oliveira & R.P. Oliveira were sampled in November 2017 in the municipality of Autazes, Amazonas, Brazil. This data was used in "Forest Fires Facilitate Growth of Herbaceous Bamboos in Central Amazonia" (Ziccardi et al., 2020). The dataset is composed by 14 variables and 36 cases (rows). Is combines data from canopy openness (collected with a hemispheric camera) with remote sensing (Vertical distance to channel network) and bamboo abundance (density and growth). The density of these herbaceous bamboos was represented by the density of clumps (clumps ha-1) and of culms (culms ha-1), while bamboo growth was expressed as culms per clump and the average height of clumps. The values are extrapolated to hectare and each row represents a sampled sub-plot.
