Dataset of non-redundant forest metrics used to model beetle richness and abundance in the Black Brook District
Beetle richness and abundance were obtained using flight intercept traps for two years in forests of different seral stages in the Black Brook District, New Brunswick, Canada. Forest metrics were obtained through traditional forest inventories and LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging).
