Figure S1 Average similarity between sites depending on the number of study species present.
Figure S2 Map showing the mean relative cover for six grass species at all recorded home and away sites.
Figure S3 Map showing the mean relative cover for six grass species at all recorded home and away sites.
Figure S4 Map showing the mean relative cover for seven forb species at all recorded home and away sites.
Figure S5 Map showing the mean relative cover for seven forb species at all recorded home and away sites.
Table S1 Description of the 39 sites including habitat, elevation (m), mean annual precipitation per year (MAP), winter low temperatures (°C), summer high temperatures (°C), and the number of plots surveyed.
Table S2 Map reference numbers indicating the sites where the abundances of each of the 26 species were recorded
Table S3 Comparison of models for mean relative cover (arc-sine transformed) for each of the 26 study species with different fixed effects and a nested random effects structure of species/site/plot, using information-theoretic model selection procedures and maximum likelihood.
Table S4 Parameter estimates for the best-fitting LMEM of relative cover (data were arc-sine transformed) for all 26 study species with random intercepts due to species (σ2 species), site within species (σ2 site), and plot within site within species (σ2 plot).
Table S5 Details of the contributions by each author to the design, analyses and writing of the manuscript.
