Data from: Biodiversity as insurance for sapling survival in experimental tree plantations

Thomas Van De Peer, Kris Verheyen, Lander Baeten, Quentin Ponette & Bart Muys
Biodiversity can insure ecosystems against declines in their functioning by increasing the mean level of ecosystem processes and decreasing the spatial or temporal variance of these processes. On this basis, mixing tree species is expected to be an effective management strategy to reduce the risk of planting failure in young plantations. We examined the effects of biodiversity insurance on sapling survival in three tree diversity experiments across Belgium. Based on the survival scoring of 89...
