Data from: Stochastic and deterministic effects on interactions between canopy and recruiting species in forest communities

Julio M. Alcantara, Manuel Pulgar, Kristian Trøjelsgaard, José L. Garrido & Pedro J. Rey
1. Interactions between established (canopy) and recruiting individuals (recruits) are pervasive in plant communities. Studies on recruitment in forests have mainly focused on negative density-dependent conspecific interactions, while the outcomes of heterospecific canopy-recruit interactions have received much less attention and are generally assumed to be driven by stochastic processes. 2. Herein, we explore the relative influence of stochastic (abundance) and deterministic (species identity and phylogenetic distance) effects on the frequency of canopy-recruit interactions, and characterise...
