Figshare. https://dx.doi.org/10.6084/m9.figshare.5384167. R CodeThe analysis proceeds in several steps, which can be viewed most easily by examining the ~/Wilcox_etal_DerivedData_and_Code/analysis_scripts/main_text_scripts/patches_source_all_scripts.R file. Questions about the code or analysis should be directed to Kevin Wilcox (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Andrew Tredennick (email@example.com). Derived DataWe provide the full set of metrics (e.g., alpha, beta, and gamma stability and diversity) for each of our study sites. The main analysis and all figures in the paper can be reproduced using these metrics. Metrics were calculated from time series of abundance data from 62 grassland sites around the globe, although primarily from North America and Europe. The data is part of the CoRRE Data Base (http://corredata.weebly.com/), and those interested in using proprietary data not included in this fileset are encouraged to contact the CoRRE data base maintainers (http://corredata.weebly.com/contact.html).
