Data from: Spatial patterns along an elevation gradient in high altitude grasslands, Brazil

Anaïs De Almeida Campos Cordeiro & Andreza Viana Neri
The Brazilian high altitude grasslands are important biodiversity centers that contribute to human well being far outside their boundaries. They host many vulnerable species that may go locally extinct as a result of small changes in the environment. Performing studies on local species distribution is important to achieve biodiversity conservation in these areas. This study intended to characterize a high altitude grassland plant community along an elevation gradient in Southeastern Brazil. Simple logistic regression, chi-squared...

Opposite latitudinal patterns for bird and arthropod predation revealed in the experiments with differently colored artificial prey

The strength of biotic interactions is generally thought to increase towards the equator, but support for this hypothesis is contradictory. We explored whether predator attacks on artificial prey of eight different colours vary among climates and whether this variation affects the detection of latitudinal patterns in predation. The data set provides number of damage marks on each of 1320 plasticine caterpillars of eight different colours, which were attached to branches of woody plants and exposed...

Data from: Atlantic Forest topsoil nutrients can be resistant to disturbance and forest clearing

Nathália Vieira Hissa Safar, Luiz Fernando Silva Magnago, Samir Gonçalves Rolim & Carlos Ernesto Gonçalves Reynauld Schaefer.
Human impacts can affect soil properties through erosion and leaching when vegetation is removed, the ecosystem functions and, consequently, the capacity of a forest to regenerate. Here, we determine the effects of forest disturbance and succession on selected soil chemical properties using two different approaches, before-after control-impact (BACI) and space-for-time (SFT) substitution, and the threatened Atlantic Forest biome as model. We assessed with BACI the long-term (37-yr) effects of clear-cutting on soil properties by comparing...
