Data from: Urbanization and plant invasion alter the structure of litter microarthropod communities

Bruce Malloch, Scott MacIvor, Shinichi Tatsumi, Sebastian Seibold & Marc Cadotte
Anthropogenic activity underpins the creation of urban ecosystems, often with introduced or invasive species playing a large role in structuring ecological communities. While the effects of urbanization on charismatic taxa such as birds, bees or butterflies have received much attention, the impacts on small and inconspicuous organisms remain poorly understood. Here, we assess how the community structure of leaf litter-inhabiting microarthropods in city parks varies along an urbanization gradient in Toronto, Canada. At each park,...
