  • Dataset Abstract The biodiversity gradient experiment is an additional long-term study located within the LTER Main Site complex, in which a series of 21 different experimental treatments vary in plant species diversity. Treatments range from bare soil to single-crop rotations to multiple-crop rotations to annually fallowed fields with early successional plant communities. Plant species richness thus varies from 0 to >15 in any given 3-year rotation cycle. Treatment plots are 9.1×27.4 meters (30×90 feet) replicated in each of 4 randomized blocks. The study site was established in 2000. original data source
