Data from: Tropical tree diversity mediates foraging and predatory effects of insectivorous birds

Colleen S. Nell, Luis Abdala-Roberts, Victor Parra-Tabla & Kailen A. Mooney
Biodiversity affects the structure of ecological communities, but little is known about the interactive effects of diversity across multiple trophic levels. We used a large-scale forest diversity experiment to investigate the effects of tropical tree species richness on insectivorous birds, and the subsequent indirect effect to predation rates by birds. Diverse plots (4 tree species) had higher bird abundance (61%), phylogenetic diversity (61%), and functional diversity (55%) than predicted based on single-species monocultures, which corresponded...
