Description Data S2. Raw data from over 276 vegetation percent coverages by individual species that were collected along a 48.28-km stretch of roadside right-of-ways in northeastern Mississippi from 2010 to 2012. The data are categorized by elevation (upland, lowland), TRT (treatment; M = mow, NM = no-mow, and S = seed), season/year (fall10 = fall 2010, SP11 = spring 2011…), status (N = native, NN = nonnative, Un = unknown status), VegType (vegetation type = forb, grass, legume…), height of vegetation (< 18 in.es tall, 18–36-in. height category, > 36-in. height category), and actual scientific name of each species detected.

Description Data S3. Raw data from over 276 vegetation percent coverage within each status and height category that were collected along a 48.28-km stretch of roadside right-of-ways in northeastern Mississippi from 2010 to 2012. The data are categorized by a unique identification field with elevation (Low = lowland, Up = upland), site location number (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5), treatments (Mow = mowing, NMow = no-mowing, and Seed = no mowing with seeding), and season/year (F10 = fall2010, Sp11 = spring 2011…). The status (N = native, NN = nonnative, Un = unknown status), vegetation type (forb, grass, legume…), and the height of vegetation (< 18 in.es tall, 18–36-in. height category, > 36-in. height category) are displayed for an overall value of percent coverage.

Description Data S1. Raw data from over 276 plant species that were collected along a 48.28-km stretch of roadside right-of-ways in northeastern Mississippi from 2010 to 2012. The data are categorized by years (2010, 2011, and 2012), seasons (fall, spring), elevation (upland, lowland), site location number (1, 2, 3, 4, and 5), and by TRT (treatment; mow, no-mow, and seed). These categories are summarized with NativeSR (native species richness), NonNativeSR (nonnative species richness), UnknownSR (unknown genus), and Total SR (total species richness count).
