Abstract

We studied the impacts of fire and grazing management on butterfly and bee abundance and species richness in tallgrass prairies. This dataset consists of data collected at 10 burned and 10 grazed Minnesota remnant prairies during the summers of 2016 and 2017. We measured insect data (butterfly and bee species richness and abundance), vegetation data (plant species richness, forb frequency, native and invasive graminoid frequency), site characteristics (proportion of sand in the soils, percent of prairie within 1.5 km of each site, site area), and management characteristics (management type (burned or grazed), cattle stocking rate, time since last fire, number of years each site was managed) at sites owned and managed by the Minnesota DNR, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, The Nature Conservancy, and private landowners. These data are associated with Leone et al. (2022). Divergent responses of butterflies and bees to burning and grazing management in tallgrass prairies. Ecology and Evolution. 12(12) e9532. http://dx.doi.org/10.1002/ece3.9532. In association with this paper, we hope these data will assist land managers and conservationists in protecting and managing native grasslands and contribute to our understanding of bee and butterfly responses to fire and grazing management practices.
