Data from: Re-growing a tropical dry forest: functional plant trait composition and community assembly during succession

Vanessa Buzzard, Catherine M. Hulshof, Trevor Birt, Cyrille Violle & Brian J. Enquist
A longstanding goal of ecology and conservation biology is to understand the environmental and biological controls of forest succession. However, the patterns and mechanisms that guide successional trajectories, especially within tropical forests, remain unclear. We collected leaf functional trait and abiotic data across a 110-year chronosequence within a tropical dry forest in Costa Rica. Focusing on six key leaf functional traits related to resource acquisition and competition, along with measures of forest stand structure, we...
