Summary

These data were compiled for a comprehensive review of pinyon-juniper communities including Pinus edulis, Pinus monophylla, Juniperus osteosperma, Juniperus monosperma, and Juniperus scopulorum. Compiled are a list of references cataloged by the topic of interest resulting from the literature search. The characterization for each reference includes the focal species, descriptions of the site(s) the study was conducted at, type of study, any land management treatments and the measured response variables. The location data for publications that provided location information have also been compiled in order to compare the geographic distribution of these studies with the distribution of the focal tree species.

Purpose

The purpose of these data are to catalog the current knowledge available in pinyon-juniper communities including Pinus edulis, Pinus monophylla, Juniperus osteosperma, Juniperus monosperma, and Juniperus scopulorum, and to explore the geographic distribution of these studies. These data can be used to locate a publication by a particular topic, geographic area, or by focal tree species. These data are a comprehensive list and characterization of the studies resulting from a literature search using the five focal tree species as search terms. Location data were extracted from the publications where available, or given coordinates based on maps or descriptions provided in the publications.
