Restoration of degraded land is recognized by the international community as an important way of enhancing both biodiversity and ecosystem services, but more information is needed about its costs and benefits. In Cambridgeshire, U.K., a long-term initiative to convert drained, intensively farmed arable land to a wetland habitat mosaic is driven by a desire both to prevent biodiversity loss from the nationally important Wicken Fen National Nature Reserve (Wicken Fen NNR) and to increase the...

Data from: Optimising trait and source selection for explaining occurrence and abundance changes: a case study using British Butterflies

Joe Middleton Welling, Rachel A. Wade, Roger L. H. Dennis, Leonardo Dapporto, Tim G. Shreeve & Joe Middleton-Welling
Functional traits that define the ecological role of an organism are increasingly being used to determine and predict responses to environmental change. Functional trait analyses of butterflies remain underexplored compared with other taxa, such as plants. Previous works using butterfly functional traits have not comprehensively addressed issues about the quality of trait data sets used and the relative predictive power of different trait types. We compare the consistency of trait descriptions between six widely used...
