Data from: Tropical tree species traits drive soil cation dynamics via effects on pH: a proposed conceptual framework

Ann E. Russell, Steven J. Hall & James W. Raich
Humid tropical forests are major players in the global carbon cycle, despite evidence that cations (rock-derived, positively charged ions) can limit or co-limit net primary productivity (NPP). In mature forests, tight cation cycling, i.e., without leaching losses, could maintain cation stocks on site. That mechanism does not explain how regenerating tropical secondary forest trees start from seeds and accrue large cation stocks in biomass, when growing on soils depleted in available cations. We propose a...
