Data from: Biodiversity-ecosystem function relationships change through primary succession

Akira Mori, Takashi Osono, J. Hans C. Cornelissen, Joseph Craine & Masaki Uchida
Ecologists traditionally use environmental parameters to predict successional shifts in compositional characteristics of local species assemblages (environmental control). Another important focus in ecology is to understand functional roles of species assemblages in determining local environmental properties (diversity control). Then, the question emerges: which is the cause, and which is the consequence? To clarify the causal relationships between species assemblages and environmental properties, we focused on seral changes in species/functional diversity of vascular plants in tundra...
