Data description

Weed seed predation, agricultural intensity and landscape composition data in winter wheat fields in Skåne, Southern Sweden

  • Data on weed seed predation were collected by using seed cards.
  • Data on weed seed availability were collected by using suction sampling
  • Data on management intensity data were collected from an ad-hoc selection of farming professionals
  • Data on habitat refugia were extracted through landscape analysis using the program ArcMap (ESRI, v. 10.4.1)
