Abstract Data were collected in the 11-year grassland biodiversity experiment in Wageningen, the Netherlands, in 2010 and 2011. Abbreviated headlines are as follows: “”BLK”= block; “PT”= plot; "SR" = plant species richness; “MI” = monoculture identity (Ac = Agrostis capillaris; Ao = Anthoxanthum odoratum; Cj = Centaurea jacea; Fr = Festuca rubra; Hl = Holcus lanatus; Lv = Leucanthemum vulgare; Pl = Plantago lanceolata; Ra = Rumex acetosa); "AAB" = average aboveground biomass from 2000 to 2010 (g m-2); "RB" = standing root biomass (g fresh weight m-2) up to 50 cm depth in June 2010; "CS" = soil carbon stocks (g C m-2) in April 2011; "NS" = soil nitrogen stocks (g N m-2) in April 2011. "CD" = soil organic carbon decomposition (mg CO2-C kg-1 soil) measured in soil collected in April 2011; "NM" = potential net N mineralization rate (µg N kg-1 soil day-1) measured in soil collected in April 2011.
