Species richness [Diversity]


Variance of species richness for all plant species on 100 m² plots over the years. (ID=155)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
Boxplot shows the inter-annual variation of the species richness for all plant species on 20 plots of 100 m² in size at the biodiversity observatory. Horizontal bold line = median, box = lower and upper quartile, whiskers = minimum and maximum.
Variance of species richness for perennial plant species (herbs, grasses, shrubs and trees) on 100 m² plots over the years. (ID=156)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
Boxplot shows the inter-annual variation of the species richness for perennial plant species (herbs, grasses, shrubs and trees) on 20 plots of 100 m² in size at the biodiversity observatory. Horizontal bold line = median, box = lower and upper quartile, whiskers = minimum and maximum.

Shannon diversity [Diversity]


Variance of Shannon diversity index for all plant species on 100 m² plots over the years. (ID=151)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
Boxplot shows the inter-annual variation of the Shannon diversity index for all plant species on 20 plots of 100 m² in size at the biodiversity observatory S28 Moedverloren. Horizontal bold line = median, box = lower and upper quartile, whiskers = minimum and maximum.
Variance of Shannon diversity index for perennial species (herbs, grasses, shrubs and trees) on 100 m² plots over the years. (ID=152)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
Boxplot shows the inter-annual variation of the Shannon diversity index for perennial plant species (herbs, grasses, shrubs and trees) on 20 plots of 100 m² in size at the biodiversity observatory S28 Moedverloren. Horizontal bold line = median, box = lower and upper quartile, whiskers = minimum and maximum.

Pielou's evenness [Diversity]


Variance of Pielou's Evenness index for all plant species on 100 m² plots over the years. (ID=153)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
Boxplot shows the inter-annual variation of the Pielou's Evenness index for all plant species on 20 plots of 100 m² in size at the biodiversity observatory S28 Moedverloren. Horizontal bold line = median, box = lower and upper quartile, whiskers = minimum and maximum.
Variance of Pielou's Evenness index for perennial plant species (herbs, grasses, shrubs and trees) on 100 m² plots over the years. (ID=154)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
Boxplot shows the inter-annual variation of the Pielou's Evenness index for perennial plant species (herbs, grasses, shrubs and trees) on 20 plots of 100 m² in size at the biodiversity observatory S28 Moedverloren. Horizontal bold line = median, box = lower and upper quartile, whiskers = minimum and maximum.

Vegetation cover [Diversity]


Variance of total vegetation cover (all plant species) on 100 m² plots over the years. (ID=157)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
Boxplot shows the inter-annual variation of the total vegetation cover (all plant species) for 19 plots of 100 m² in size at the biodiversity observatory. Horizontal bold line = median, box = lower and upper quartile, whiskers = minimum and maximum. Ha 2, which is situated in a river, has been omitted as an outlier.
Variance of total vegetation cover in percent for the perennial species (herbs, grasses, shrubs, and trees) on 100 m² plots over the years. (ID=158)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
Boxplot shows the inter-annual variation of the total vegetation cover in percent for the perennial species (herbs, grasses, shrubs, and trees) on 20 plots of 100 m² in size at the biodiversity observatory. Horizontal bold line = median, box = lower and upper quartile, whiskers = minimum and maximum. Ha 2, which is situated in a river, has been omitted as an outlier.

Rainfall [Climate]


Total rainfall per year for the observatory S28 Moedverloren. (ID=169)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
Total rainfall [mm] per year for the observatory S28 Moedverloren as measured by the SASSCAL Weather Station next to the observatory.

SPEI [Climate]


Standardised Precipitation-Evapotranspiration Index (SPEI) accumulated over 12 months. (ID=171)
(created by Ute Schmiedel)
The SPEI index is a standardised monthly climatic balance computed as the difference between the cumulative precipitation and the potential evapotranspiration (Vicente-Serrano et al. 2010). For this presentation the SPEI value per month is based on the accumulated values of the previous 12 months. Red bars indicate drought, blue bars humid conditions.
