Title Characteristics of and calculated stability metrics for 27 biodiversity - ecosystem function experiments
Downloaded 103 times
Description This data set contains summary statistics and calculated stability metrics for 27 biodiversity - ecosystem function (BEF) experiments. These experiments were selected from a literature survey, and include all BEF experiments that (a) experimentally manipulated species richness of primary producers, (b) included single-species monocultures, (c) measured biomass production at least three time points, (d) retained individual data for all experimental units (as opposed to treatment means), and (e) made raw data available. Data reported for each experiment include basic descriptors of the experimental design, and several calculated statistics that summarize the observed relationship between species diversity and ecosystem stability.
