Data from: Tree diversity increases robustness of multi-trophic interactions

Felix Fornoff, Alexandra-Maria Klein, Nico Blüthgen & Michael Staab
Multi-trophic interactions maintain critical ecosystem functions. Biodiversity is declining globally, while responses of trophic interactions to biodiversity change are largely unclear. Thus, studying responses of multi-trophic interaction robustness to biodiversity change is crucial for understanding ecosystem functioning and persistence. We investigate plant-Hemiptera- (antagonism) and Hemiptera-ant- (mutualism) interaction networks in response to experimental manipulation of tree diversity. We show increased diversity at both higher trophic levels (Hemiptera and ants) and increased robustness through redundancy of lower...
