Data from: Harsh environmental regimes increase the functional significance of intraspecific variation in plant communities

Kechang Niu, Shiting Zhang & Martin Lechowicz
The relative importance of intraspecific trait variation (rITV) for functional diversity (FD) in plant communities is increasingly apparent, but the influence of abiotic factors on the balance between intraspecific and interspecific effects in contrasting environments is uncertain. We predicted that rITV would increase with environmental harshness as a result of decreasing interspecific variation (Inter_FD) and concomitant increases in between-population ITV(Intra_FD). We empirically tested this prediction in a comparison of rITV for five traits (mature plant...
