Data from: A global meta-analyses of the response of multi-taxa diversity to grazing intensity in grasslands

Chao Wang & Yujia Tang
Livestock grazing is an important component and driver of biodiversity in grassland ecosystems. While numerous studies and a few meta-analyses had been conducted on the response of single taxon diversity to grazing in grasslands, a synthesis of how multi-taxa diversity is affected has been largely missing, especially reflecting its changes along a grazing intensity gradient. We performed a comprehensive meta-analyses of 116 published studies on the species richness (SR) and Shannon-Wiener index (H’) of plants,...

Revegetation by sowing reduces soil bacterial and fungal diversity

Chao Wang
Aim: The aim of this study was to understand the effects of revegetation on the diversity of bacteria and fungi in soil by sowing a single species and exploring the underlying mechanism. Location: Beijing, China Taxon: Plants and Microbes Methods: In a short-term ecological restoration experiment, one natural recovery treatment and three seed sowing treatments were chosen to assess their effects on the alteration of fungal and bacterial diversity. Plant species richness, abundance, and height...

Data from: Independently evolved and gene flow‐accelerated pesticide resistance in two‐spotted spider mites

Pest species are often able to develop resistance to pesticides used to control them, depending on how rapidly resistance can emerge within a population or spread from another resistant population. We examined the evolution of bifenazate resistance in China in the two‐spotted spider mite (TSSM) Tetranychus uticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae), one of the most resistant arthropods, by using bioassays, detection of mutations in the target cytb gene, and population genetic structure analysis using microsatellite markers....

Data from: Varying the spatial arrangement of synthetic herbivore-induced plant volatiles and companion plants to improve conservation biological control

1.Conservation biological control aims to control pests by promoting wild populations of natural enemies. One challenge is to attract and retain efficient natural enemies in crop fields, which often are a suboptimal environment. Towards this goal, the attract-and-reward strategy relies on combining attractive synthetically produced herbivore-induced plant volatiles (HIPVs) with companion plants (non-crop plants which provide alternative resources to the targeted natural enemies). Although severely overlooked, the spatial arrangement of HIPV dispensers and rewards inside...

Data from: Responses of plant phenology to nitrogen addition: a meta-analysis

Chao Wang & Yujia Tang
Phenology is one of the most sensitive plant processes in response to global change. Anthropogenic activities have considerably increased nitrogen (N) deposition, which significantly affects plant phenology. Although numerous individual studies have been conducted, a comprehensive understanding of how plant phenology responds to external N inputs remains elusive. We therefore conducted a meta-analysis of 117 species responses to N addition to examine effects on phenology in terrestrial ecosystems, and we assessed variations in their responses...
