Lineage At each sampling location 5 m x 5 m plots were randomly sampled (approximately between 12 and 20 plots) within each agricultural practice. The aim was to quantify percent cover of total vegetation, individual plant species, and the number of seabird burrows. In addition, in each plot, soil was collected for nutrient analysis. Soil analyses include exchangeable nitrogens, total N, P, K, pH and stable isotopes.
