We performed replicated, repeated-measures data of height, diameter and vitality at tree level to allow analysis of spatial and temporal structure and diversity in a semi-natural mixed floodplain forest in Italy. Three inventories were performed in 1995, 2005 and 2016 in three ~1 ha plots with varying soil moisture regimes. The use of replicated, repeated-measures data rather than chronosequences allows the examination of true changes in spatial pattern processes through time in this forest type.
