Table S1. List of all herb layer species (<1-m height) encountered in the 27 plots of the GNNR. Species are listed with respect to the successional stage in which they occurred (1:<20 yr, 2:<40 yr, 3:<60 yr, 4:<80 yr, 5:>80 yr). The first value in each column is percentage frequency, i.e. the number of plots in which a species occurred in this successional stage related to total number of plots in this group. The Phi values were tested for significance with Fisher's exact test, using a significance level of P=0.01. The superscript indicates a significant Phi value (multiplied by 100) according to Fisher's exact test as a measure of fidelity.
Table S2. Abundance and diversity of woody species in the herb layer in relation to predictor variables according to the Pearson correlation. Significance levels are ‘***’<0.001; ‘**’<0.01; ‘*’<0.05.
