Environmental data along the latitudinal gradient
2016-11-23T03:30:31Z (GMT) by
This file contains data on the abiotic and biotic conditions experienced by both annual and perennial guilds along the sampled latitudinal gradient. Variables include mean rainfall in mm, temperatures in degree celcius (mean monthly maximum, mean monthly minimum, mean daily), mean sunshine hours in autumn, spring and winter, mean number of rabbit faecal pellets (a proxy for grazing intensity), mean soil nitrogen concentration, as well as mean bryophyte ground cover and mat thickness, and mean correlation between annual abundances and bryophyte ground cover. This data was used to produce figures 3, B1 and B3.
