Data from: A meta-analysis of nestedness and turnover components of beta diversity across organisms and ecosystems

Janne Soininen, Jani Heino & Jianjun Wang
The number of studies investigating the nestedness and turnover components of beta diversity has increased substantially, but our general understanding of the drivers of turnover and nestedness remains elusive. Here, we examined the effects of species traits, spatial extent, latitude and ecosystem type on the nestedness and turnover components of beta diversity. From the 99 studies that partition total beta diversity into its turnover and nestedness components, we assembled 269 and 259 data points for...

Data from: Synergetic use of Sentinel-1 and Sentinel-2 for assessments of heathland conservation status

Johannes Schmidt, Fabian E. Fassnacht, Michael Förster, Sabastian Schmidtlein & Sebastian Schmidtlein
Habitat quality assessments often demand wall-to-wall information about the state of vegetation. Remote sensing can provide this information by capturing optical and structural attributes of plant communities. Although active and passive remote sensing approaches are considered as complementary techniques, they have been rarely combined for conservation mapping. Here, we combined spaceborne multispectral Sentinel-2 and Sentinel-1 SAR data for a remote sensing-based habitat quality assessment of dwarf shrub heathland, which was inspired by nature conservation field...
