General Information:
Title:Plant reproductive susceptibility to habitat fragmentation meta-analysis
Identifier:bowdish.783
Abstract:
List of 89 plant species selected for the meta-analysis. For each species we show the botanical family, the value of effect size (Hedge's d) and its variance (Vd), the compatibility system (CS), pollination specialization (PS), life form (LF), habitat type, geographic region and the source publication where information was obtained. SI: self-incompatible, SC: self-compatible, S: specialist, G: generalist, T: tree, Sh: shrub, V: vine, H: herb, Hp: hemi-parasite, ep: epiphyte. ‡ (double dagger symbol) Species from which the effects of habitat fragmentation on the pollination process were also assessed and thus were evaluated in a separate meta-analysis (cf. Methods section). This table is part of the supplemntary material included with Ecology Letters, Ramiro Aguilar, Lorena Ashworth, Leonardo Galetto, Marcelo Adrián Aizen (2006), Plant reproductive susceptibility to habitat fragmentation: review and synthesis through a meta-analysis, Ecology Letters 9 (8), 968-980. doi:10.1111/j.1461-0248.2006.00927.x

Sampling, Processing and Quality Control Methods

Step by Step Procedures
Step 1:  
Description:

Literature search

We conducted an extensive survey of the literature using different approaches: first, we searched through our own data base (Reference Manager 10.0, 2001) with more than 12,000 updated references using a combination of fragment and poll and (seed set or fruit set) as keywords. Internet searches were also conducted using the same keyword combinations through the Science Citation Index and Biological Abstracts data bases as well as through the main editorials (Blackwell Publishing, Springer-Verlag and Elsevier) that gather the most important indexed journals of ecology and conservation biology.

Sampling Area And Frequency:
We included studies that compared plant reproductive success in: (i) real habitat fragments vs. continuous forests; (ii) natural plant populations of different sizes or degree of isolation; (iii) isolated trees vs. those in forests; and also (iv) experimental artificial plant populations that controlled for population size and/or degree of isolation to evaluate the mechanisms associated with habitat fragmentation.
Sampling Description:
To calculate Hedge's d for each species, we obtained (either from text, tables or graphs) the mean values, sample sizes and some variance measure of reproductive success for each of the two categories.
