Data underlying article 'Towards effectively restoring agricultural landscapes in East African drylands: Linking plant functional traits with soil hydrology'
We measured field-saturated soil hydraulic conductivity (Kfs) and soil organic carbon (SOC) in 38 plots across agricultural landscapes in Muminji, Kenya. Woody vegetation and land use inventories took place and species functional traits were measured on the 63 most important species. We systematically tested the effects of vegetation quantity (aboveground woody
biomass and vegetation cover) and quality (functional properties and diversity) on soil health (Kfs as a proxy for soil infiltrability and SOC for soil fertility).
This dataset contains the data that underlies the analysis and outcomes of this study, described for each dataset below.
