Title Patch-scale summary data
Downloaded 26 times
Description Contains data for each 900 square-meter patch (patches were the primary units of analysis in the study). These data are the basis of Figures 1 and 2, and Tables 1 and S1, in the paper. Data include the experimental treatment of each patch; gecko (lizard) abundances and densities in July 2013, March 2014, and July 2014; the number and density of trees per patch; mean tree height and basal circumference; abundance and length of insects (gecko prey) captured in sticky traps within each patch; number and density of elephant damaged trees in each patch; and number of trees in each patch occupied by four different symbiotic acacia-ant species (along with unoccupied trees and trees other than Acacia drepanolobium, which do not have ants).
