Arguments

park

Combine data from all parks or one or more parks at a time. Valid inputs:

"all"

Includes all parks in the network

"ACAD"

Acadia NP only

"MABI"

Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller NHP only

"MIMA"

Minute Man NHP only

"MORR"

Morristown NHP only

"ROVA"

Roosevelt-Vanderbilt NHS only

"SAGA"

Saint-Gaudens NHS only

"SARA"

Saratoga NHP only

"WEFA"

Weir Farm NHS only

from

Year to start analysis, ranging from 2006 to current year

to

Year to stop analysis, ranging from 2006 to current year

QAQC

Allows you to remove or include QAQC events.

FALSE

Default. Only returns visits that are not QAQC visits

TRUE

Returns all visits, including QAQC visits

locType

Allows you to only include plots that are part of the GRTS sample design or include all plots, such as deer exclosures.

"VS"

Only include plots that are part of the Vital Signs GRTS sample design

"all"

Include all plots, such as plots in deer exclosures or test plots.

eventType

Allows you to include only complete sampling events or all sampling events

"complete"

Default. Only include sampling events for a plot that are complete.

"all

Include all plot events with a record in tblCOMN.Event, including plots missing most of the data associated with that event (eg ACAD-029.2010). This feature is currently hard-coded in the function.

Value

Returns a dataframe with all quadrat-related notes. Only returns visits with notes. The Note_Info column is either the quadrat or the species the note was recorded for. The Sample_Info column is either the sample qualifier for the quadrat, where SS = successfully sampled, NS = not sampled, NP = no species present, NC = not collected by protocol, and PM = permanently missing. If the Sample_Info column has "Collected" listed it means the species with the note was also collected.
