Data from: Life cycle matters: DNA barcoding reveals contrasting community structure between fern sporophytes and gametophytes

Joel H. Nitta, Jean-Yves Meyer, Ravahere Taputuarai & Charles C. Davis
Ferns are the only major lineage of vascular plants that have nutritionally independent sporophyte (diploid) and gametophyte (haploid) life stages. However, the implications of this unique life cycle for fern community ecology have rarely been considered. To compare patterns of community structure between fern sporophytes and gametophytes, we conducted a survey of the ferns of the islands of Moorea and Tahiti (French Polynesia). We first constructed a DNA barcode library (plastid rbcL and trnH–psbA) for...
