Data from: Tree, sex and size: ecological determinants of male versus female fecundity in three Fagus sylvatica stands

Inter-individual variation in fecundities has major consequences on population evolutionary potential, through genetic drift and selection. Using two spatially explicit mating models that analyze the genotypes of seeds and seedlings, we investigated the variation of male and female fecundities within and among three European beech (Fagus sylvatica) stands situated along an elevational gradient. Female and male individual fecundity distributions were both skewed in this monoecious species, and we found a higher variance in female as...
