Ecological indicator and traits values for Swedish vascular plants

Tyler, Torbjörn LU ; Herbertsson, Lina LU ; Olofsson, Johan and Olsson, Pål Axel LU (2020) In Ecological Indicators 120. p.1-13
Abstract
We introduce and provide a new data-set of species-specific ecological indicator values (alternative ‘Ellenberg values’ for climatic variables, light, moisture, soil reaction/pH, salinity, nitrogen and phosphorus plus response to management and disturbance), physiological and reproductive traits (including symbionts, phenology, pol- linators, nectar production, seed properties), indices of relevance for conservation (including introduction his- tory and biodiversity relevance), and presence in 38 main vegetation types for all vascular plant species of Sweden based on a broad survey of published and unpublished data. The potential uses and limitations of the values, traits and indices are briefly outlined and discussed.
