Abstract: 

Sum of dry mass removed for each plant growth form from each plot of biodiversity experiment. Amount of plant material removed in initial establishment of plant diversity treatments was recorded for later use as covariate or measure of disturbance.

Material was weighed in the field by species, and species-level data are available from Huenneke; however, this file summarizes plant material removed (dry mass) by growth form (shrub, subshrub, perennial grass, succulent) and by total live dry mass. Also provided are mass of dead material collected from plots (same species as live material removed for each treatment) and total dry mass, live plus dead.
