This dataset comprehends data and and associated R code used to run the analysis for the paper. We also include an R Markdown Dynamic document. We tested whether the amount of melanomacrophages and hepatic cellular catabolism substances are influenced by land use changes in the Brazilian Cerrado. Data contains the Environmental matrix (Q) composed of the land use classes for each samplimg site, species trait (R) matrix with content of each pigment in cells, averaged from all individuals, and species composition matrix (L) with the species incidence in all sampling sites.
