Title Brazilian_efficiency
Downloaded 70 times
Description This file offers the data behind Fig. 3A of Lähteenmäki et al., estimating the efficiency of the Brazilian MESOCLOSURES in preventing the inflow of beetles as a function of MESOCLOSURE size. Included are counts of beetles caught by identical traps in two settings: traps within the MESOCLOSURES and traps outside the MESOCLOSURES. The specific columns are the following: Time: day of experiment (with individual trapping periods extending over 24 hours) Size: the dimension of the MESOCLOSURE (given as the length of MESOCLOSURE side, in metres) Replicate: the identity of the replicate cage Total: the summed number of beetles caught inside and outside of the MESOCLOSURE Inside: the number of beetles caught inside of the MESOCLOSURE

Title Dungweight
Downloaded 70 times
Description This file offers the data behind Fig. 4A-C of Lähteenmäki et al., estimating the effects of time, grazing regime (i.e. of grass length) and beetle taxa present on dung pat weight in the temperate experiment (for an in-depth description, see Appendix 1, section Experimental design, Finland). The specific columns are the following: BlockID: block identity CageID: cage identity Pat: dung pat replicate Grass height: simulated grazing regime, with L identifying long grass and S identifying short grass Geotrupes presence: design variable indicating whether Geotrupes was present or not Aphodius presence: design variable whether Aphodius was present or not Measurement: measurement day (treated as a categorical variable) Weight: dung weight, in grams

Title Finnish_efficiency
Downloaded 61 times
Description This file offers the data behind Fig. 3B of Lähteenmäki et al., estimating the efficiency of the Finnish MESOCLOSURES in preventing the inflow of beetles as a function of species identity. Included are counts of beetles caught by bait pats in two settings: baits within the MESOCLOSURES, and baits outside the MESOCLOSURES. The specific columns are the following: Replicate: the identity of the replicate MESOCLOSURE Species: the identity of the species Total: the summed number of beetles caught inside and outside of the MESOCLOSURES Inside: the number of beetles caught inside of the MESOCLOSURE

Title Soil temperatures
Downloaded 63 times
Description This file offers data on soil temperature, as recorded in each of four subplots on 27th July and reported verbally in the Results. The specific columns are the following: Replicate: the identity of the replicate MESOCLOSURE Enclosure type: treatment applied at the MESOCLOSURE level (for an in-depth description of treatment types, see main paper) Grass height: simulated grazing regime, with L identifying long grass and S identifying short grass Temperature: temperature recorded, in °C, with missing data indicated by an empty cell
