Data from: Facilitation among plants can accelerate density-dependent mortality and steepen self-thinning lines in stressful environments

Wei-Ping Zhang, Xin Jia & Gen-Xuan Wang
The speed and slope of plant self-thinning are all affected by plant-plant interactions across environmental gradients. Possible mechanisms driving the self-thinning dynamics include the relative strength of root vs. shoot competition, and the interplay between competition and facilitation. Although these mechanisms often act in concert, their relative importance has not yet been fully explored. We used both a one-layer and a two-layer zone-of-influence (ZOI) model to examine how competition and facilitation drive self-thinning across stress...
