After-fire resprouting capacity of 46 woody plant species in South African savanna

The data contains measurements of resprouting after fire on more than 1800 individuals of 46 species. Resprouting is measured one growing season after controlled, high itensity fires. Skeleton height, number of resprouting stems, average height of resprouting stems, diameter and height of 4 "pseudeo-random" (one per direction) resprouting stems as well as height and diameter of the 4 biggest resprouting stems are recorded. the data defrentiates between stems resprouting from the base of a plant and stems restprouting form upper parts of the plant ("shoots"). The data was recorded on different plots during a field campaign in march 2011 in the southern part of Kruger National Park, South Africa.
