Title DATA weight decrease in litter bags with and without Orchestia gammarellus
Downloaded 11 times
Description File presents data from litter bag experiment to investigate the effect of Orchestia gammarellus on litter decomposition. Litter bags were in Orchestia gammarellus addition and removal treatments, in two different vegetation types: late and early successional vegetation. Litter weight decrease (of original 10 grams) was determined in presence and absence of Orchestia gammarellus.

Title DATA vegetation biomass after 2-year field experiment
Downloaded 8 times
Description File presents data vegetation biomass data from 2-year manipulation experiment with Orchestia gammarellus was addition, removed and control treatments in early (Limonium vulgare) and late successional (Elytrigia atherica) vegetationtypes. Vegetation biomass was determined in a 50x50 cm square, in July 2010. As a result of a mistake during the sample collection, two data points are missing.

Title DAT Nmin, moisture
Downloaded 10 times
Description File presents data from 2-year manipulation experiment with Orchestia gammarellus addition, removed and control treatments in two different vegetation types. During this experiment, nutrient mineralization in the various treaments was monitored. This file contains data on total N mineralization, NH4 and NO3 as well as the availability of these. It also contains data on soil moisture.

Title DAT soil redox potentials Orchestia Lab experiment
Downloaded 10 times
Description In a lab experiment we added Orchestia gammarellus to compacted salt marsh soils to investigate its effect on soil aeration and facilitation of a successional plant species, Elytrigia atherica. During the experiment we measured the redox potentials every 2 weeks.

Title Data on other variables in the lab experiment
Downloaded 7 times
Description In a lab experiment we added Orchestia gammarellus to compacted salt marsh soils to investigate its effect on soil aeration and facilitation of a successional plant species, Elytrigia atherica. File contains data on plant performance of Elytrigia atherica, seedling germination, and survival of Orchestia gammarellus.
