Fig. S6. Potential explanations for the relationship between forest cover and generality/vulnerability: the average interaction evenness of all hosts and enemies in each strip as a function of forest cover.
Fig. S7. Potential explanations for the relationship between forest cover and generality.
Fig. S8. Potential explanations for the relationship between forest cover and interaction diversity: a) the total interaction evenness for each food web as a function of forest cover, and b) the total number of interactions of each food web as a function of forest cover.
Fig. S9. A potential explanation for the relationship between plant species richness and compartmentalisation: the proportion of “specialist” hosts with only one enemy and of specialist enemies with only one host both increase significantly with plant species richness.
