Title Seedling survival model data
Downloaded 24 times
Description Data were collected from five forested sites around New York State. We indicate the site, deer access (1=deer access, 0=fencing), and earthworm count and dry biomass (each data point from 10 50x50cm quadrats).We have included environmental measurements used in the models, such as pH, Leaf Area Index, slope, soil type and tree species richness. The survival of each species is indicated by column headers of species name (ie. Actaea), with 1 for surviving individuals and 0 for dead individuals. Finally, we list the initial measurements of each species at planting in the columns market with I.Species. For the majority of species, this is leaf width measured in cm. However, due to their growth forms, Carex was measured by # culms, Brachyelytrum by height (cm) and Fraxinus by leaf number.

Title Rodent attack
Downloaded 14 times
Description Data were collected in 2012, approximately 1 month after planting seedlings, and in spring 2013. We analyzed the data at the plot level, so each data point includes site, earthworm invasion status (Worm), and fencing (Deer). Rodent digs or browse are listed as Success, and the remaining untouched seedlings are listed as Failure.

Title Insect attack
Downloaded 9 times
Description See Rodent attack description for column information. Because insect attack can only be observed on living plants, we divided the actual number of insect attack events by proportion of seedlings surviving.
