Title Community Abundance
Downloaded 15 times
Description Number of individual vascular plants rooted in 92 pairs of shrub covered and open habitat patches. Values are total numbers of individuals of each species counted in a 20 x 30 cm quadrat placed at a random location within each shrub and open habitat patch. Quadrat locations were the same as those used for the estimated plant cover values in "CommunityCover.csv".
