This is a five year project that investigates the reassembly of soil fungi and native plants in forests affected by biological invasion. The experiment brings together regional land managers to create comparative eradications of garlic mustard at nine distinct sites along a natural climate and nitrogen deposition gradient in New England. This dataset represents baseline plant abundances from 2013 at nine study plots in Harvard Forest. Species richness, Shannon diversity, and Pielou’s evenness were not different between invaded and non-invaded plots at Harvard Forest.
This dataset is released to the public and may be freely downloaded. Please keep the designated Contact person informed of any plans to use the dataset. Consultation or collaboration with the original investigators is strongly encouraged. Publications and data products that make use of the dataset must include proper acknowledgement.
