The community of woody species (shrubs and trees), with the capacity to act as nurse plants, was sampled in three habitat subtypes of Ziziphus lotus (Habitat 5220*, Habitat Directive UE): i) habitat dominated by Ziziphus lotus individuals (ZIZ) ; ii) habitat dominated by Maytenus senegalensis with Ziziphus lotus (ZIZMAY); iii) habitat dominated by Chamaerops humilis with Ziziphus lotus (ZIZCHA). Each habitat subtype was sampled at 8 locations using 25 [10x10 m] sampling squares (8 locations x 25 sampling squares = 200 squares per habitat subtype x 3 subtypes = 600 total squares). In each square, the list of woody plant species, with the capacity to act as nurses, and their covers (% or m2) was recorded. The squares were randomly distributed, trying to cover the largest possible area within each locality to avoid sampling bias. Rarefaction curves were used to calculate the diversity estimates per habitat subtype showed in .csv files (n for rarefaction curves per habitat subtype = n sampled squares per habitat subtype x 2 = 200 x 2 = 400). iNEXT package (Hsieh, Ma and Chao, 2020) of R sofware (R Core, 2021) was used to calculated the summaries and diversity estimates showed in .csv files., Our aim was to characterize the woody plant species, with the capacity to act as nurse plants, present in the arborescent scrubs with Ziziphus lotus (Habitat 5520*, Habitat Directive EU) in the semiarid southeast of the Iberian Peninsula, mainly in Almería province (Andalucia, Spain). We selected three habitat subtypes with Ziziphus lotus: i) habitat dominated by Ziziphus lotus individuals (ZIZ) ; ii) habitat dominated by Maytenus senegalensis with Ziziphus lotus (ZIZMAY); iii) habitat dominated by Chamaerops humilis with Ziziphus lotus (ZIZCHA)., This work was funded by Proyecto FEDER SUMHAL-Sustainability for Mediterraean Hospost in Andalusia integrating LifeWatch ERIC [Work Package 9.
