This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/8Y9PJWRural households living in tropical ecosystems depend heavily on forest trees for valuable nontimber forest products that are, however, undergoing unsustainable harvesting. This study assessed early survival and growth of Allanblackia stuhlmannii (Clusiaceae), a nontimber tree species endemic to Tanzania. A total of 400 seedlings sourced from twenty elite female trees were planted in two adjacent locations. Data were collected over 59 months for survival, height and root collar diameter....

Replication Data for Factors Determining Forest Diversity and Biomass on a Tropical Volcano, Mt. Rinjani, Lombok, Indonesia

Gbadamassi G. O. Dossa
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/ZPFCCETropical volcanoes are an important but understudied ecosystem, and the relationships between plant species diversity and compositional change and elevation may differ from mountains created by uplift, because of their younger and more homogeneous soils. We sampled vegetation over an altitudinal gradient on Mt. Rinjani, Lombok, Indonesia. We modeled alpha- (plot) and beta- (among plot) diversity (Fisher's alpha), compositional change, and biomass against elevation and selected covariates. We also examined...

Tree planting by smallholder farmers in Malawi: Using the theory of planned behaviour to examine the relationship between attitudes and behaviour

Seline S. Meijer, Delia Catacutan, Gudeta W. Sileshi & Maarten Nieuwenhuis
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/XWBWJGThis study examined farmers' attitudes towards tree planting on farms in Malawi, using the theory of planned behaviour as a conceptual framework. Questionnaires containing a scale that measures attitudes, subjective norms, and perceived behavioural control in relation to tree planting were administered to 200 farmers in Chiradzulu and Mzimba districts in Malawi. Farmers who reported planting trees in the last five years had more positive attitudes, subjective norms and perceived...

This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/XTGRRLThe main output of the SSA CP was the implementation of Integrated Agricultural Research for Development (IAR4D) and assessing whether it works or not. This involved conducting research study to identify the effects of the IAR4D approach and its different components in designing and implementing research targeted at the interface of processes driving productivity gains, efficient use of resources, the care of the environment, policies and markets that would increase...

Replication Data for Correct calculation of CO2 efflux using a closed-chamber linked to a non-dispersive infrared gas analyzer

Gbadamassi G. O. Dossa
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/XIENPD1.Improved understanding of the carbon (C) cycle is essential to model future climates and how this may feedback to affect greenhouse gas fluxes. 2.We summarize previous work quantifying respiration rates of organic substrates and briefly discuss how advances in technology, specifically the use of chambers linked to a non-dispersive infrared gas analyzer (NDIR), can be applied to assess carbon dynamics from short-term field measurements. This technology hastens measurement and is...

Replication Data for Litter fall and nutrient return along a disturbance gradient in a tropical montane forest.

Ekananda Paudel
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/W74DMELitterfall plays an important role in nutrient cycling and maintenance of soil fertility in terrestrial ecosystems. Annual and seasonal variation in litterfall have been investigated in various habitats, however, seasonality in nutrient supply is less well documented. We studied litterfall over two years and seasonal litter nutrient input over one year across a tropical disturbance gradient from mature forest to monoculture tea plantation. Total litter production in the mature forests...

Replication Data for Environmental and geographic factors driving dung beetle (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae) diversity in the dipterocarp forests of Peninsular Malaysia

Hannah M. Doll
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/TUYNFMDespite a good understanding of dung beetle (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae: Scarabaeinae) ecology in Southeast Asia, little is known about dung beetles in Peninsular Malaysia. No general study of dung beetle diversity has been carried out in Peninsular Malaysia, and we lack an understanding of how environmental and geographic factors, such as floristic zone, affect dung beetle community diversity. We sampled dung beetle diversity at eight different sites distributed throughout Peninsular Malaysia...

Replication Data for Phylogenetic clustering increases with succession for lianas in a Chinese tropical montane rain forest

Mareike Roeder
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/TQVCLYPrevious research found that phylogenetic clustering increased with disturbance for tropical trees, suggesting that community assembly is mainly influenced by abiotic factors during early succession. Lianas are an important additional component of tropical forests, but their phylogenetic community structure has never been investigated. Unlike tropical trees, liana abundance is often high in disturbed forests and diversity can peak in old secondary forest. Therefore, phylogenetic structure along a disturbance gradient might...

Replication Data for Using metabarcoding to ask if easily collected soil and leaf-litter samples can be used as a general biodiversity indicator

Chenxue Yang
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/SOENYIThe targeted sequencing of taxonomically informative genetic markers, sometimes known as metabarcoding, allows eukaryote biodiversity to be measured rapidly, cheaply, comprehensively, repeatedly, and verifiably. Metabarcoding helps to remove the taxonomic impediment, which refers to the great logistical difficulties of describing and identifying species, and thus promises to improve our ability to detect and respond to changes in the natural environment. Now, sampling has become a rate-limiting step in biodiversity measurement,...

Replication Data for Proximity to the host is an important characteristic for selection of the first support in lianas

Mareike Roeder
This dataset was moved to: https://doi.org/10.34725/DVN/P70OJNLianas depend on support to reach optimal growing conditions. They can infest trees unevenly, and host selection may depend on functional characteristics of the potential hosts, such as growth rate, bark type or tree architecture. In this context we hypothesized that (1) simple proximity to the rooting point of the liana is the overriding property predicting the probability of selection as the host; (2) the distance to the host decreases...
