Data from: Grazing exclusion unleashes competitive plant responses in Iberian Atlantic mountain grasslands

Iñaki Odriozola, Gonzalo García-Baquero, Marie-Josée Fortin, Nere Amaia Laskurain & Arantza Aldezabal
Questions: Does the absence of equalizing mechanisms after cessation of grazing unleash strong aboveground competitors to create large patches in the community? Do these competitive intraspecific aggregations displace and exclude other species, thereby reducing species diversity? Location: Atlantic grasslands in the Aralar Natural Park, Basque Country, Northern Iberian Peninsula. Methods: Large herbivores were experimentally excluded from three sites (50 m × 50 m exclusion fences) during nine years in a productive semi-natural grassland system with...
