Figure 7

Insect community composition described through a nonmetric multidimensional scaling of sample units (averaged by month) in insect species space, with weighted average positions shown for species significantly correlated with (a,b) axes 1 and 2 and (c,d) axes 1 and 3. Sample units that are close together in the graph are more similar (in species composition) than those far apart. (a,c) Convex hulls connect groups of treatments (by month). Colored, un-filled symbols represent sample units. Black circles represent species. Joint-plot vectors (red lines) show environmental variables correlated with the axes, vector length represents correlation strength. (b,d) Successional vectors connect centroids from each group of treatments (by month) to illustrate community change over time. Colored, filled symbols represent centroids. Black circles represent species. Fundamental coordinates were generated and data exploration was conducted in PC-ORD Software version 7.0747. Figure linework and aesthetics were created in Microsoft PowerPoint 2016.
