Collected data from herbaceous vegetation plots across an urbanization gradient in road verges of Munich, Germany. Vegetation surveys were conducted to assess the cover of standing vegetation in existing road verges (controls) and in experimental plots after one year of sowing seed mixtures of native grasslands species.
Data on landscape and site variables was also gathered in order to test the relationship between landscape and site factors with the recorded vegetation.

Method of data assessment:
Standing vegetation in control and one-year-old experimental plots were surveyed using the Braun-Blanquet method. The collected data was used for community and functional composition analysis. Functional data on the species in the standing vegetation and the sown seed mixture were gathered from databases to conduct functional composition analysis and the calculation of multitrait diversity indices. The effect of the sowing year, landscape factors and site conditions were modeled to understand th...     »
