Biological metrics: data from 202 UK lotic sites used in the analysis for the study: Multiple co-occurrent alien invaders constrain aquatic biodiversity in rivers. Ecological Applications

The following explain the column headings in the spreadsheet:

SITE_ID =Site ID of the lotic site; WATER_BODY= Water body name, SAMPLE_DATE=Date of Sampling, WHPT_TOTAL= WHPT index score, N_TAXA-WHPT=Total number of taxa used to calculate the WHPT score, Frich=Functional Richness value, FRed= Functional Redundancy value, ACI=Abundance Contamination Index, RCI=Richness Contamination Index, Invaders= Number of invaders (5 = ≥5)
