Data from: BIOVERA-Tree: tree diversity, community composition, forest structure and functional traits along gradients of forest-use intensity and elevation in Veracruz, Mexico

María Leticia Monge González, Patrick Weigelt, Nathaly Guerrero Ramírez, Dylan Craven, Gonzalo Castillo Campos, Thorsten Krömer & Holger Kreft
Here, we describe BIOVERA-Tree, a database on tree diversity, community composition, forest structure, and functional traits collected in 120 forest plots distributed along an extensive elevational gradient in Veracruz State, Mexico. BIOVERA-Tree includes information on forest structure from three levels of forest-use intensity, namely old-growth, degraded, and secondary forest, replicated across eight elevations from sea-level to near the tree line at 3500 m and on size and location of 4549 tree individuals with a diameter...

A new algorithm for reconstructing tree height growth with stem analysis data

Christian Salas-Eljatib
I offer here both dataset and computing code related to a stem analysis algorithm to reconstruct height growth of trees. First, the dataset has time series records of tree height for Nothofagus alpina ("rauli"), N. dombeyi ("coigue"), N. obliqua ("roble"), and Pseudotsuga menziesii ("Douglas-fir"). The data come from stem analysis sample trees in both southern Chile and the Inland Northwest, USA. These trees are part of the ones used in an article about a new...

Pacific Introduced Flora (PacIFLora)

Michael Wohlwend, Dylan Craven, Patrick Weigelt, Hanno Seebens, Marten Winter, Holger Kreft, Wayne Dawson, Franz Essl, Mark Van Kleunen, Jan Pergl, Petr Pyšek, James Space, Philip Thomas & Tiffany Knight
The Pacific region has the highest density of naturalized plant species worldwide, which makes it an important area for research on the ecology, evolution and biogeography of biological invasions. While different data sources on naturalized plant species exist for the Pacific, there is no taxonomically and spatially harmonized database available for different subsets of species and islands. A comprehensive, accessible database containing the distribution of naturalized vascular plant species in the Pacific will enable new...

Data from: Functional diversity and redundancy of tropical forests shift with elevation and forest-use intensity

María Leticia Monge González, Nathaly Guerrero Ramírez, Thorsten Krömer, Holger Kreft & Dylan Craven
1. Change and intensification of forest use alter tropical ecosystems, influencing biodiversity and, subsequently, ecosystem functioning. The implications of eroding biodiversity may go beyond decreases in species diversity, resulting in changes of functional diversity, i.e. the diversity of ecological strategies present in the community, and functional redundancy, i.e. how redundant these strategies are to biodiversity loss. However, how environmental conditions and anthropogenic influences shape functional diversity and redundancy in tropical forests remains poorly understood. 2....
