Predictive ecological modeling (State-space models, SEM, Bayesian MCMC, Partition of variance into process and sampling variance, Quantification of uncertainty) (Damgaard, 2012, Damgaard et al., 2014)

Fine-grained high-quality longitudinal plant cover data from 17 Danish light-open habitat types (Nielsen et al., 2012).

Ecological data needed for process-based predictive models: Longitudinal data on the ecosystem level from experimental sites where either the climate or agricultural pressures (nitrogen and pesticides are varied.
