Dung beetle diversity on Mt. Kilimanjaro, supplement to: Gebert, Friederike; Steffan-Dewenter, Ingolf; Moretto, P; Peters, Marcell Karl (2020): Climate rather than dung resources predict dung beetle abundance and diversity along elevational and land use gradients on Mt. Kilimanjaro. Journal of Biogeography, 47(2), 371-381


This data set contains plot data on climate, land area, land use, primary productivity, conservation status and mammal defecation rates for explaining the diversity of dung beetles on Mount Kilimanjaro. Both the whole dung beetle community and the functional guilds rollers, tunnellers, dwellers and kleptoparasites are taken into consideration.
