Data from: The reciprocal relationship between competition and intraspecific trait variation

Jonathan A. Bennett, Kersti Riibak, Riin Tamme, Rob J. Lewis & Meelis Pärtel
Trait differences among plants are expected to influence the outcome of competition; competition should be strongest between similar species (or individuals) under limiting similarity, and between dissimilar species within competitive hierarchies. These hypotheses are often used to infer competitive dynamics from trait patterns within communities. However, plant traits are frequently plastic in response to competition. This variation is poorly accounted for in trait-based studies of competition and community assembly. To explore the relationship between trait...
