Data from: Seed banks are biodiversity reservoirs: species-area relationships above versus below ground

Vigdis Vandvik, Kari Klanderud, Eric Meineri, Inger E. Måren & Joachim Töpper
Soil seed banks offer plants the possibility to disperse through time. This has implications for population and community dynamics, as recognised by ecological and evolutionary theory. In contrast, the conservation and restoration literature often find seed banks to be depauperate, weedy and without much conservation value or restoration potential. One explanation for these contrasting views might lie in a systematic bias in the sampling of seed banks versus established plant communities. We use the species–area...
