Title Standardized abundances of carabid species caught in every sites
Downloaded 36 times
Description This table contains the standardized abundances of each carabid species captured in each of the 192 sites. Carabids were collected using three pitfall traps in each site and beetle abundances were divided by the number of days each trap was active to remove the effect of trap disturbance. The code for each species is available in table E1 of the associated publication (Blanchet et al. Consensus RDA across dissimilarity coefficients for canonical ordination of community composition data, Ecological Monographs) as well as the detailed description of sampling protocol. More details about sampling and analysis of this data may be found in: Blanchet FG, JAC Bergeron, JR Spence, F He, 2013. Landscape effects of disturbance, habitat heterogeneity and spatial autocorrelation for a ground beetle (Carabidae) assemblage in mature boreal forest.

This data and the analysis procedures associated with this paper are also available in the R package ordiconsensus (https://r-forge.r-project.org/R/?group_id=68).

Title Relative basal area for each tree species recorded in every sites
Downloaded 27 times
Description This table contains the relative basal area for each tree species sampled at each site. In each of the 192 sites, the diameter at breast height (dbh) and species of the 25 trees closest to the centre of the plot and over 5 cm bdh were recorded. Total basal area was calculated for each species in each site and divided by the total basal area of all species in each site to produce the relative basal area. Refer to the associated publication (Blanchet et al. Consensus RDA across dissimilarity coefficients for canonical ordination of community composition data, Ecological Monograph) for more details on sampling protocol and table E2 of this same publication for the abbreviation of the tree species.
