Data from: Shrubs as ecosystem engineers across an environmental gradient: effects on species richness and exotic plant invasion

Andrew R. Kleinhesselink, Susan M. Magnoli & J. Hall Cushman
Ecosystem-engineering plants modify the physical environment and can increase species diversity and exotic species invasion. At the individual level, the effects of ecosystem engineers on other plants often become more positive in stressful environments. In this study, we investigated whether the community-level effects of ecosystem engineers also become stronger in more stressful environments. Using comparative and experimental approaches, we assessed the ability of a native shrub (Ericameria ericoides) to act as an ecosystem engineer across...
