The data collections were conducted as part of a larger project called FuncFinse. We aimed to study if and how the (functional) diversity of lichen communities determines the species diversity and community composition of micro-arthropods (Collembola). We created experimental patches with mixtures of one, two, three, or four different lichen species and placed these in lichen mats in semi-open pine forest (Pinus sylvestris) in Kollåsen, Ski, Norway. The soil micro-arthropods were harvested from the lichen patches after one summer season of incubation.

Data Records

The data in this sampling event resource has been published as a Darwin Core Archive (DwC-A), which is a standardized format for sharing biodiversity data as a set of one or more data tables. The core data table contains 150 records.

1 extension data tables also exist. An extension record supplies extra information about a core record. The number of records in each extension data table is illustrated below.

Project Data

FuncFinse is a four-year project on primary producers and their effect on the tundra. In this project researcher Johan Asplund and his colleagues will examine how the plants on the tundra interact, and how they in turn affect the natural world around them.
