Data from : Vacant yet invasible niches in forest community assembly

Pierre Gauzere, Xavier Morin, Cyrille Violle, Ivanna Caspeta, Courtenay Ray & Benjamin Blonder
It is controversial whether communities are saturated with species, or have vacant niches. The prevalence of vacant niches and the processes likely to promote their existence are poorly known. We used a process‐based forest gap‐model to simulate plant community dynamics in 11 sites along a climatic gradient across central Europe. We then used hypervolume analyses to study the existence of vacant niches (seen as empty volumes in the trait space of local species pools and...
