Data from: Spatial genetic structure in four understory Psychotria species and implications for tropical forest diversity

Terra J. Theim, Rebecca Y. Shirk & Thomas J. Givnish
Premise of the study: Tropical forests are the most species-rich terrestrial communities on Earth, and understory trees and shrubs comprise a large fraction of their plant species diversity, especially at high rainfalls. The mechanisms responsible for generating such high levels of diversity remain unknown. One hypothesis is that fleshy-fruited understory species should have limited seed dispersal due to the sedentary nature of their avian dispersers, resulting in restricted gene flow, population differentiation at small spatial...
