Data from: Early life conditions and precipitation influence the performance of widespread understory herbs in variable light environments

Andrea C. Westerband & Carol C. Horvitz
1. The understory of tropical forests is heterogeneous across time, and plants that inhabit this layer may exhibit adaptations (e.g. trait plasticity) that enable them to exploit this variability to their advantage. We tested the hypothesis that two widespread understory herbs would perform equally well in a variable as in a constant environment, using a two-year shade-house experiment. 2. We measured demographic traits (growth and survival), a physiological trait (maximum photosynthetic capacity), and life history...
