Abstract:
We used DNA-barcoding to identify herbivore-host plant associations along declining levels of tree diversity in a large-scale, subtropical biodiversity experiment. We tested for effects of tree species richness, host functional and phylogenetic diversity, and host functional (leaf trait) and phylogenetic composition and composition, and leaf trait composition on taxonomicspecies, phylogenetic, and network composition of herbivore communities.Our data from six sampling periods represent 6821 mitochondrial cytochrome c oxidase subunit I (COI) sequences of lepidopteran larvae, clustered into 447 molecular operational taxonomic units.
Design:
Lepidopteran larvae were collected six times in 2017 and 2018 (April, June and September in each year). We collected all caterpillars by beating individual trees and knocking down resident insects. Lepidopteran caterpillars are much more restricted in their mobility than adult and flying insects and have a high probability of being collected from the trees they actually feed on (see also Wardhaugh et al., 2012). We beat the trees with a padded stick over a white sheet (1.5 m × 1.5 m) and collected all caterpillars knocked down from the trees (Schuldt et al., 2014). We sampled all trees in the first rows of each plot for a total 80 living trees in each plot.

Definition:
Study plot identifier; Datagroup description: Reasearch plots of the Biodiversity - Ecosystem functioning experiment (BEF-China). There are three main sites for research plots in the BEF Experiment: Comparative Study Plots (CSP) in the Gutianshan Nature Reserve, having a size of 30x30m^2, measured on the ground. Main Experiment plots have a size of 1 mu, which is about 25x25m^2 in horizontal projection. Pilot Study Plots have a size of 1x1 m^2. Research plots on the main experiment have a "p" in front of their IDs and then a 6 digit code: Plots in the main sites A and B are named according to their position in the original spreadsheet, in which they were designed. They consist of 6 digits: _1st digit_: Site (1:A, 2:B), _digit 2and3_: southwards row: as in spreadsheets the rows are named from the top to the bottom; _digit 4 and 5_: westward column: as in the original spreadsheet, but the letters are converted to numbers (A=01, B=02); _6th digit_: indicator, if the plot has been shifted a quarter mu. Example: "p205260": "p" means that this is a plot that is specified. "2" means, that we are at site B. Now the coordinates of the south - west corner: "0526". Since "e" is the fifth letter of the alphabet, this is Plot E26. The last digit "0" means that this plot was not moved by a quarter of a Mu, as some sites in Site A. The 6th digit can also indicate the subplot within the plot. "5", "6", "7", "8" indicate the northwest, northeast, southeast, and southwest quarter plot respectively.
