  3. aThe number of plots for INPA, PPBio and RadamBrasil refers to those with location information. In the case of the NFI, the number of plots are those measured or in the process of measurement and include 192 plots of forest concessions
  4. bIn the case of SL LiDAR data, they work with sites, not transects. Each site could have a different number of transects. They have 70 sites along the Brazilian Amazon
