This work was supported by National Science Foundation (NSF) grant DEB-0111410 to the University of Tennessee, NSF Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) grants to some of the individual sites, and numerous smaller grants and fellowships to other institutions. More than 100 students and scientists gathered the information for the experiments. The NSF LTER network, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service and many municipal and private landowners facilitated the field research. The NSF DEB provided supplemental funding to organize the online database. When using these data, we suggest you cite one or both of these two core LINX papers as appropriate:
