Data sets were provided by Dr. Dylan G. Fischer, Dr. Alison Styring, Dr. Paul Przybylowicz, Dr. Carri LeRoy, the Evergreen Field Ecology Laboratory, and the academic programs Field Ecology 2006, IES-2006/2007, Temperate Rainforests 2007, and Field Ecology 2008. Significant funding for these data was provided by the Evergreen Foundation, Sponsored Research Grants from the Evergreen State College, The Microsoft Corporation, and the Plato Foundation.


We attempt to make the data as available as possible, however, there are significant issues associated with free access to data including: Legal, data completion, error checking, publication, privacy, and protection of student researcher first publication rights issues. these issues may prevent us from immediately posting some data, or making all data and methods immediately available. Thank you for understanding these issues. Please note that these issues apply to all data that is posted, as well as some data we have collected but have not yet posted. Clear communication with EEON researchers will quickly protect all involved from abuse of access privileges to data. Thanks for your understanding! We look forward to working with you!
