bufferdat: Parameters for vegetated buffers

Description Usage Format Details Source Examples

Description

Contains parameters describing vegetated filter strips for use in VFS modeling.

Usage

1
data("bufferdat")

Format

A data frame with 2 observations on the following 3 variables.

Species

Type of buffer

bg

Average stem spacing (cm)

n
