Data from: Shade tolerance and the functional trait - demography relationship in temperate and boreal forests

Aitor Ameztegui, Alain Paquette, Bill Shipley, Michael Heym, Christian Messier & Dominique Gravel
Despite being instrumental in forest ecology, the definition and nature of shade tolerance are complex and not beyond controversy. Moreover, the role it plays in the trait – demography relationship remains unclear. Here, we hypothesize that shade tolerance can be achieved by alternative combinations of traits depending on the species’ functional group (evergreen vs. deciduous species), and that its ability to explain the array of traits involved in demography will also vary between these two...
