Data from: More for less: sampling strategies of plant functional traits across local environmental gradients

Carlos P. Carmona, Cristina Rota, Francisco M. Azcárate & Begoña Peco
Ecologists use approaches based on plant functional traits to tackle several fundamental and applied questions. Although a perfect characterization of functional trait structure requires the measurement of all the individuals in communities, this is prohibitively resource-consuming. Consequently, the general practice is to average the trait values of a reduced number of individuals per species. However, there are different alternatives regarding the number, identity and spatial location of the individuals chosen to calculate species-averaged trait values....
