Site-level data and Jaccard similarities from Newbold et al. (2016) "Has land use pushed terrestrial biodiversity beyond the planetary boundary? A global assessment", Science 353, 281-291, DOI: 10.1126/science.aaf2201

This is the site-level data used in Newbold et al. (2016) "Has land use pushed terrestrial biodiversity beyond the planetary boundary? A global assessment", Science, and the Jaccard similarities among land uses from the models in the same paper. Please refer to that paper for details of how the site-level data frame and Jaccard similarity matrix were created, and the README file for column explanations. Identifying information (author, bibliographic details, precise coordinates) have been removed from this data frame so as not to violate agreements with the many data contributors; the full biodiversity data set that underpins these analyses is currently in review (as of May 2016) and will be published on data.nhm.ac.uk, by agreement with the contributors, at which point all the biodiversity data used here will be available.
