Leaf traits predict water-use efficiency in U.S. Pacific Northwest grasslands under rain exclusion treatment

Hilary Rose Dawson, Toby Maxwell, Paul Reed, Scott Bridgham & Lucas Silva
Does drought stress in temperate Pacific Northwest, USA, grasslands alters the relationship between plant structure and function? Here we report data from an experiment focusing on growth form and species traits that affect the critical functions of water- and nutrient-use efficiency in prairie and pasture plant communities. A total of 139 individuals of 12 species (11 genera and four families) were sampled in replicated plots maintained for three years across a 520 km latitudinal gradient...
