Abstract

This collection of datasets and R code contains all that is necessary to repeat the analysis in the publication "Moth declines are most severe in broadleaf woodlands despite a net gain in habitat availability" - Blumgart et al. 2022. It contains moth abundance data collected in the UK by the Rothamsted Insect Survey from 1968 to 2016, and datasets derived from this data. Also included is habitat data derived from the Land Cover Map 2015 provided by the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology and moth species traits. The R scripts can be run on the data provided to carry out the analysis which examines the effect of habitat and species traits on the long-term trends in moth abundance, richness, diversity and biomass. For a full description of each file, see the README file.
