Appendix D. The results of the habitat analyses.

FIG. D1. Boxplots of the phylogenetic and functional turnover quantiles from the BCI-FDP in relation to the habitats described in Harms et al. (2001). HP = High Plateau; LP = Low Plateau; M = Mixed; SL = Slope; ST = Stream; SW = Swamp; Y = Young




FIG. D2. The results of a Tukey Test that analyzed whether the phylogenetic and functional turnover in different habitats in the BCI-FDP were significantly different from one another. If the horizontal lines cross the gray vertical line at zero, then there is no significant difference in the mean quantile scores for that habitat comparison. The first row compares 1982 to 2005, the second row compares 1982 to 2000, the third row compares 1982 to 1995, the fourth row compares 1982 to 1990 and fifth row compares 1982 to 1985. The ‘Swamp’ habitat (SW) had distinctly higher phylogenetic turnover compared to the other habitat types. The ‘Young’ habitat (Y) had distinctly higher functional turnover compared to the other habitats except for the ‘Swamp’ habitat which also had relatively higher functional turnover.
