Below- and aboveground traits explain local abundance, and regional, continental and global occurrence frequencies of grassland plants

Tom Lachaise, Joana Bergmann, Matthias Rillig & Mark Van Kleunen
1. Plants vary widely in how common or rare they are, but whether commonness of species is associated with functional traits is still debated. This might partly be because commonness can be measured at different spatial scales, and because most studies focus solely on aboveground functional traits. 2. We measured five root traits and seed mass on 241 Central European grassland species, and extracted their specific leaf area, height, mycorrhizal status and bud-bank size from...
