Data from: Does soil moisture availability explain liana seedling distribution across a tropical rainfall gradient?

Eric Manzané-Pinzön, Guillermo Goldstein & Stefan A. Schnitzer
Liana density tends to increase with decreasing rainfall and increasing seasonality. However, the pattern of liana distribution may be due to differences in soil water retention capacity, not rainfall and seasonality per se. We tested the effect of rainfall and soil substrate with respect to the distribution of liana seedlings in six sites across a rainfall gradient from the wet Atlantic to the dry Pacific in central Panama. Soils were either limestone, with low water-holding...
