This dataset is a spatial point pattern of trees recorded at Waka National Park, Gabon. See Balinga et al (2006).

The dataset waka is a point pattern (object of class "ppp") containing the spatial coordinates of each tree, marked by the tree diameter at breast height dbh. The survey region is a 100 by 100 metre square. Coordinates are given in metres, while the dbh is in centimetres.
