Data from: Historic disturbance regimes promote tree diversity only under low browsing regimes in eastern deciduous forest

Tim Nuttle, Alejandro A. Royo, Mary Beth Adams & Walter P. Carson
Eastern deciduous forests are changing in species composition and diversity outside of classical successional trajectories. Three disturbance mechanisms appear central to this phenomenon: fire frequency is reduced, canopy gaps are smaller, and browsers are more abundant. Which factor is most responsible is a matter of great debate and remains unclear, at least partly because few studies have simultaneously investigated more than one process. We conducted a large-scale experiment in mesophytic forests of West Virginia, USA,...
