Standardized abundances of carabid species caught in every sites
2016-10-26T14:43:41Z (GMT) by
This table contains the standardized abundances of each carabid species captured in each of the 192 sites. Carabids were collected using three pitfall traps in each site and beetle abundances were divided by the number of days each trap was active to remove the effect of trap disturbance. The code for each species is available in table E1 of the associated publication (Blanchet et al. Consensus RDA across dissimilarity coefficients for canonical ordination of community composition data, Ecological Monographs) as well as the detailed description of sampling protocol.
