Ant species abundance at C2 Plots

Christine Wallis
Abundance of ant species were collected during the wet and the dry season 2014 on the core plots and intermediate elevation levels (1000, 1500, 2000, 2500, 3000) on disturbed and undisturbed forest plots.

Pasture rehabilitation on, and management of degraded areas in the Andes of South Ecuador

Pyraloidea species abundance 1999-2000 (species-site matrix)

Dirk Suessenbach, Konrad Fiedler & Christine Wallis
Nocturnal moths were sampled on 20 plots during three periods between 1999 and 2000 using light traps equipped with two backlight 15 W tubes operated between 18:30 and 21:30 local time (UTC-5:00). Catches were restricted to periods from three days after full moon until five days before full moon. Specimens were sorted to morphospecies within pyraloid moths (Pyraloidea). Data originates from PHD thesis of Dirk Süßenbach. He is the main author of the dataset. Süßenbach,...

Introduction: Monitoring functions in megadiverse tropical ecosystems

MRp|SE Newsletter, Issue: 1

DFG PAK 823-825
The first MRp|SE Newsletter offers research and knowledge transfer results: The test of models for small scale plant distributions shows the advantages of ensemble approaches. This result as well as a new method to analyze canopy evapotranspriation and leaf photosynthesis were awarded with poster prizes. A medical technique helps to study wood anatomy. In contrast to previous data the analysis of fertilized phosphorus revealed that it is not only retained in above-ground biomass and the...

Bird species abundance in the San Francisco Valley

Christine Wallis & Detlev Paulsch
Bird species (elevational gradient: 1800-2530m) occurrence and abundance has been collected by a trained observer in 30 forest sites in the study area under favorable weather conditions at 6:00–10:00 and 16:00–18:00 (UTC ?5:00) between 2000 and 2002 (Paulsch and Müller-Hohenstein, 2008). Standardized point counts (30 min) were repeated 12 times per site and combined with mist-netting data to comprehensively assess the bird assemblages.

Longterm time series of the Giessen Free Air Carbon Enrichment experiment (GiFACE) experiment

Wolfgang Obermeier
Within the experiment, a permanent temperate grassland is treated with elevated CO2 (~20% during daylight hours). In three rings the air is enriched with CO2 while other three rings act under atmospheric CO2 (control). This dataset contains the ring-wise late-summer yields as well as the ring-wise CO2 concentrations (averaged in the three months before harvest) and other variables describing the environmental conditions (likewise aggregated to their average in the three months preceding harvest; respectively sum...

DTM 1m (derived from LiDAR survey)

Brenner Silva, Joerg Zeilinger & Thomas Lotz
This Digital Terrain Model (DTM) is created using linear interpolation applied on ground-class points of the LiDAR data. The helicopter-based survey of the Rio San Francisco catchment has been conducted in the periods of March 7-17, 2012 and November 12-19, 2012. Coordinate System UTM, Datum WGS84, Zone 17S, and Geoid EGM96 - for orthometric height - are used. The horizontal accuracy is within 5cm (based on control landmark of the IGM geodetic network). Quality assurance...

Geometridae species abundance 1999-2000 (species-site matrix)

Gunnar Brehm, Konrad Fiedler & Christine Wallis
Nocturnal moths were sampled on 20 plots during three periods between 1999 and 2000 using light traps equipped with two backlight 15 W tubes operated between 18:30 and 21:30 local time (UTC-5:00). Catches were restricted to periods from three days after full moon until five days before full moon. Specimens were sorted to morphospecies within geometrid moths (Geometridae). Data from the PHD-thesis of Dr. Gunnar Brehm. For additional information on methods and sites see: Brehm,...

Fog frequencies in Europe (monthly means)

Sebastian Egli
This dataset contains monthly average fog frequencies for Europe.

Tree species - estimated species diversity (Matrix plots)

Christine Wallis & Jürgen Homeier
All woody plants (including palms and arborescent ferns) with a diameter at breast height (dbh) > 5 cm and a height > 1.3 m were sampled on 50 permanent plots each covering 20 m × 20 m between 2007 and 2008. Species richness was estimated at a coverage of 70% of the expected total species richness using rarefaction and extrapolation. The site scores for the first two dimensions of NMDS ordination analysis were based on...
