CSV file containing data used in our analysis including the following six tables: 1. Primary Matrix: includes the plot (rows) x species (columns) matrix used for our NMS analysis. 2. Secondary Matrix: includes our plot (rows) x site factors (columns) used in our joint-plots. MAP= mean annual precipitation, MAT=mean annual temperature. 3. NMS Scores: worksheet includes the output from our NMS analysis for plots (rows) and the three axis (columns). 4. Species Abundance Data: measured abundance by species by plot. Columns include: plot, species (using USDA Plants Database codes), Presence (1=yes; 0=no), Treated (Yes/No), Herbivory (Yes/No) and Group (treatment combinations). 5. Species Height Data: Height (measured and log transformed) by species by plot.Species names use USDA Plants Database codes. 6. Plot Summaries: plot richness, diversity, and total shrub abundance (sum of all species frequencies) by treatment.
