Description This file contains the six measures of plant diversity for each of the 381 study plots, each of 1 km2 size, as obtained from the Swiss biodiversity monitoring indicator "species richness in landscapes" (www.biodiversitymonitoring.ch/en/data/indicators/z/z7.html). Additionally, the file contains the estimated atmospheric N deposition for each plot as well as the different covariates as obtained from [1]. The content of the columns is as follows: PLOT_ID: Unique identifier for each 1 km2 plot. TOTAL_SR: Number of recorded species. OLIGO_SR: Number of species typically found on nutrient-poor soils, i.e. oligotrophic species with N-values of one and two [2]. AGRI_SR : Number of target species for which Swiss agriculture has particular responsibility of conservation [3]. UNIQUE: Community uniqueness calculated as the average Simpson dissimilarity index [4] of species composition for the particular study plot paired with each other plot. FD: Functional diversity. PD :Phylogenetic diversity. Ndep: Atmospheric Nitrogen deposition (kg ha-1 yr-1). E.avg: Altitude (m.a.s.l.). L.agrilow: Lowland agricultural area (ha). L.tree: Open woody formation area (ha). CALC: Calcareous substrate (%). TR.ran: Range of temperature variation Jul.-Jan. (°C). creek.sd: Standard deviation of creek length (m).
