Tree trait, insect herbivore abundance and powdery mildew infection data (2016-17) from Forest Research Climate Matching Trials, UK

This data set comprises two years of data (2016 and 2017) from one trial (Hucking, Kent, UK) and one year (2017) from a second trial (Hartshorne, Derbyshire, UK). Data was collected on tree traits (tree height, shoot length, tree provenance), abundance of foliar insect herbivores (gallers, leaf manipulators and leaf miners) and leaf damage by oak powdery mildew, a foliar fungal pathogen. Data was collected from plots differing in tree diversity (provenance and species diversity).

Provenance & quality

The study took place at the Climate Match tree diversity experiment planted in 2011 at two sites in the UK. One site was established in South East England at Hucking, Kent (51°17'47.5"N 0°37'58.2"E), the other in the East Midlands at Hartshorne, Derbyshire (52°47'41.1"N, 1°30'58.8"W). On focal Quercus robur trees, we recorded abundance of three insect guilds: gallers, leaf miners and leaf manipulators, as well as infection by oak powdery mildew. We also recorded information on tree traits (tree height, shoot length). For further information on the design of the trials and the sampling protocol, see the supporting metadata for the dataset.
