The effectiveness of flower strips and hedgerows on pest control, pollination services and crop yield: a quantitative synthesis
Albrecht, Matthias et al. (2021), The effectiveness of flower strips and hedgerows on pest control, pollination services and crop yield: a quantitative synthesis, Dryad, Dataset, https://doi.org/10.5061/dryad.ns1rn8pq2
To identify datasets suitable to address the research questions of this quantitative synthesis a search in the ISI Web of Science and SCOPUS was performed. To minimise potential publication bias and to maximise the number of relevant datasets we also searched for unpublished data by contacting potential data holders through researcher networks. Data was requested through a standardized data sheet template from dataset holders. As different studies used different methods and measures to quantify pollination services, pest control services and crop yield, the data was standardized prior to statistical analysis using z-scores. A mixed effect-modelling approach was used to statistically analyse the data. Details on methods of data collection and analysis is are given in the material and methods section of the paper, and in the Supporting Figure 1 and Supporting Tables 1-5.
