Vascular plant abundance in herbivore exclosures and control plots in meadow sites.

The dataset includes three different types of files and all files (except the readme) are saved as ;-separated txt-files:

  • One data file per year (_YEAR.txt)

  • One coordinate file with coordinates of all sites included in the dataset (_coordinates.txt)

  • One auxiliary file with information about which sites are included in the dataset and when (_aux.txt)

  • One readme file with additional information about the variables included in the study design (_readme.pdf)

The data is not publicly available yet.
