This data set contains all effect sizes between a control and a disturbed treatment for 508 experiments used to analyze recovery across ecosystems and organisms. A full description of the methods is in the paper associated to this manuscript. The data contains 6 columns.
case.ID is a unique identifier for each of the 508 experiments. Appendix S1 at the paper contains full documentation for each of the experiments.
resp.cat categorizes the response variable as either biomass, abundance, an index of diversity or composition. The manuscript details the rationale behind these categries, and the detailed variables measures are given in Appendix S1.
Day of the experiment, with 0 being the pre-distrubance day.
RD: Relative duration within the experiment, i.e., normalizing the day of the experiment to the duration of the experiment, such that 1 is the final sampling date.
LRR is the effect size of the disturbance, in most cases a log-response ratio, only for composition mostly a dissimilarity metric. Again, for detauls see the paper's method section
var.lrr is the sampling variance of the effect sizes, if blank it could not be derived from the primary literature.
