Data from: Developmental constraints and resource environment shape early emergence and investment in spines in saplings

Mohammed Armani, Tristan Charles-Dominique, Kasey E. Barton & Kyle W. Tomlinson
Abstract Background and Aims Herbivory by large mammals imposes a critical recruitment bottleneck on plants in many systems. Spines defend plants against large herbivores and how early they emerge in saplings may be one of the strongest predictors of sapling survival in herbivore-rich environments. Yet little effort has been directed at understanding the variability in spine emergence across saplings. Methods We present a multi-species study examining whether and how sapling size,spine type and species’ environmental...
