Data from: Radial changes in wood specific gravity of tropical trees: inter- and intra-specific variation during secondary succession

Benjamin T. Plourde, Vanessa Boukili, Robin Chazdon, Vanessa K. Boukili & Robin L. Chazdon
Variation in wood specific gravity (WSG) within and across species of tropical trees is poorly studied in relation to vegetation change during tropical forest succession. We investigated WSG of 91 species in eight long-term plots along a successional chronosequence in northeastern Costa Rica. Radial changes in WSG were described by the rate of change (slope) along the stem radius. Significant radial changes were found in 42 of 74 species, with 37 species exhibiting increases from...
