Seedlings morphological attributes in NUMEX 2013

Daisy Cárate & Jürgen Homeier
Analyses if morphological and physiological attributes of seedlings from the two most common species in NUMEX experiment at the three elevations. Changes in this attributes are altered by nutrient availability in this case fertilization might showed specific limitation for N or P.

Quantification of functional hydro-biogeochemical indicators in Ecuadorian ecosystems and their reaction to global change

Arctiinae 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 arctiinae moths (Erebidae: Arctiinae). For further information and details on the sampling sites see: Süßenbach, D. (2003): Diversität von Nachtfaltergemeinschaften...

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,...

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,...

A spatially explicit indicator for species diversity derived from remote sensing in the mountain rainforest of southern Ecuador

Christine Wallis, Konrad Fiedler, Roland Brandl, Nina Farwig & Jörg Bendix

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...
