Data on plant-fungus and plant-arthropod interaction links for the 549 plant species found across the 130 BioWide sites in Denmark. Detailed descriptions of field data collection protocols are found in Brunbjerg AK, Bruun HH, Brøndum L, Classen AT, Dalby L, Fog K, et al. (2019) A systematic survey of regional multi-taxon biodiversity: evaluating strategies and coverage. BMC Ecology 19(1):43. doi: 10.1186/s12898-019-0260-x. Raw data on known interaction links between all relevant plant taxa (1349 taxa on the species or genus levels) and associated arthropod species were retrieved from the BRC database (https://www.brc.ac.uk/dbif/) and similar data regarding associated fungal species from the Danish Fungal Database (https://svampe.databasen.org/). The raw data were processed to obtain an observed arthropod link score and an observed fungal link score per plant species. The calculus of link scores from raw data is detailed in the associated manuscript. Attributes of the 549 plant species used to model their predicted link score (ectomycorrhizal status, native area, occupancy in Denmark, phylogenetic grouping, lifespan, life form and size) were compiled from sources detailed in the associated manuscript.
