Table 2 Hierarchical partitioning of the variation in plant phenology

From: Diversity of plant assemblages dampens the variability of the growing season phenology in wetland landscapes

Phenophases Landscape identity Community temporal variance Species richness Community average functioning Community asynchrony
G-U 0.42 0.27  < 0.01 0.09 0.22
G-D 0.16 0.15  < 0.01 0.34 0.35
GSL 0.46 0.08  < 0.01 0.29 0.17
  1. Plant phenology was explained by: Landscape identity, Species richness, Community temporal variance (year within landscape), Community average functioning (community identity within landscape), and Community asynchrony (interaction year x community identity). The values show the coefficient of determination (R2) associated with each phenology component when modelling the green-up date (G-U), the green-down date (G-D) and the growing season length (GSL)
