Data from: Grazing intensity affects insect diversity via sward structure and heterogeneity in a long-term experiment

Jana Sabrina Jerrentrup, Nicole Wrage-Mönnig, Klaus-Ulrich Röver & Johannes Isselstein
In the past, insect diversity in grasslands showed a severe decline due to management intensification or abandonment. In this study, we investigate the long-term influence of grazing and the potential for spatial patterns created by different grazing intensities to enhance insect diversity. In a long-term experiment (2002–2011), three grazing intensities were applied to 1-ha paddocks in a triplicate block design: moderate grazing (MC), lenient grazing (LC) and very lenient grazing (VLC, since 2005). The experiment...
