Div
the diversity variable(s) included in the design of the experiment
EV = evenness, FD = functional diversity, GD = genetic diversity, OD = diversity in geographic origin or provenance, PD = phylogenetic diversity, SR = species richness
25
EVlevels of evenness
26
FD
levels of functional diversity or description of FD aspect considered
- means FD is not part of the design
27
GD
levels of genetic diversity or description of GD aspect considered
- means GD is not part of the design
28
OD
levels of diversity in geographic origin/provenance or description of OD aspect considered
- means OD is not part of the design
29
PD
levels of phylogenetic diversity or description of PD aspect considered
- means PD is not part of the design
30
SRlevels of species richness- means SR is not part of the design
31
Mixturesnumber of different mixtures / assemblages
32
Replicationthe experimental factors that are replicated
s: each level of species richness is replicated with different species mixtures (at some sites except the highest level).
33
f: each level of functional group richness is replicated with different species mixtures.
34
m: each particular species mixture (= individual species composition or assemblage) is replicated identically.
35
c: each level of clone diversity is replicated with different clone mixtures.
36
cm: each particular clone mixture (= individual clone composition) is replicated identically.
37
FD: each level of FD is replicated with different species mixtures.
38
dom: each dominance level (Simplex-design) is replicated with identical species mixture.
39
den: each dominance treatment is planted in high and low density.
40
g: each level of generic diversity is replicated with different species mixtures.
41
h: each level of height diversity is replicated with different species mixtures.
42
mb: individual species mixtures are replicated only at the highest diversity level, but not at lower diversity levels.
43
mk: mixture replicated in smaller plots
