Data from: Different functional characteristics can explain different dimensions of plant invasion success

Huixuan Liao, Robert Pal, √úlo Niinemets, Michael Bahn, Bruno Cerabolini & Shao-Lin Peng
The success of invasive plant species can be evaluated using different dimensions, such as, range size, abundance, and impact. These different dimensions do not always covary but are rarely separated, suggesting an urgency to disentangle the functional mechanisms behind them. A dataset of leaf traits and four dimensions of invasion success (i.e., range size, local abundance, impact on native plant abundance, and impact on native plant diversity) were compiled for 395 non-native plant species in...
