Data from: Range size, local abundance and effect inform species descriptions at scales relevant for local conservation practice

    This study describes how metrics defining invasions may be more broadly applied to both native and invasive species in vegetation management, supporting their relevance to local scales of species conservation and management. A sample monitoring dataset is used to compare range size, local abundance and effect as well as summary calculations of landscape penetration (range size × local abundance) and impact (landscape penetration × effect) for native and invasive species in the mixed-grass plant community of western North Dakota, USA.
