Title ecosystem_function_Zirbel_2017_dryad
Downloaded 19 times
Description This file contains ecosystem function data from plots within each of 29 restored prairie sites in Southwestern Michigan. Each site contains 10 1x1m sampling plots. Each function was collected at the plot level during the 2013 growing season.

Title plant_community_Zirbel_2017_dryad
Downloaded 6 times
Description This file contains plant community composition data from plots within each of 29 restored prairie sites in Southwestern Michigan. Each site contains 10 1x1m vegetation sampling plots spaced evenly along a 45m transect, at the approximate site center. Values denote percent cover of each plant species found in each of the 1x1m plots. Sampling occurred from August 13th to the 21st in 2013. Cover in each plot can sum to greater than 1 if individuals were overlapping. Cover does not need to sum to 1 due to the presence of bare ground (not included in this dataset).

Title trait_data_field_Zirbel_2017_dryad
Downloaded 17 times
Description Continuous plant functional traits that were collected from within the restored prairie sites. Across all species, traits were collected at many restoration sites, but each species’ traits are only collected at a single site. Trait values for plant height and SLA are measured on an individual. Seed mass values are averaged from at least 50 seeds from 5 individuals or pulled from the Kew Seed information database (SID). Missing trait data are represented with NA.
