Database Help & Information
Welcome to the PJ Wood Database Site. The PJ Wood is a research database which archives Pinyon-Juniper manipulations on Bureau of Land Management lands across the Colorado Plateau.
Before you start, please read the database and website disclaimer. We also recommend you review the search tips below. Due to massive amounts of data returned on unstructured searches, we have established search criteria to refine and limit results to the most relevant information. These criteria do not limit your access to the data.
The Research Database Number (RDN) is a unique ID assigned to each treatment. Use these numbers to identify treatments in your search results and when using the Dynamic Map.
Search for specific treatments by entering treatment identification data or search for a range of treatments using the variables on the Search Criteria page:
Search data by location, treatment type, or any combination of the items displayed on the search screen. All searches require you to drill down through the data. This should allow you the opportunity to refine the actual record you want to review and work with.
Bolded Words or Symbols enclosed by the <> symbols indicate a key or action. Example: <Enter> (key) or <Click> (action).
Bold text indicates the name of an object found on the page like a control or a link.
Data grid controls look like a spread sheet. All data grids have a check box on the left side of each row of data and one in the header.
All items in a radio button list are mutually exclusive.
You can only select one item, if you chick on another item in the list, the first item is deselected and the new item is selected.
