datall.zip - all files

The data files contains species
means, standard deviations (SD), and sample sizes (*N*)
for 36 traits and 20 species. Information on species is listed in Table 1 of
the published paper. Methods of the paper describe each trait in detail, and
Table 2 provides summary statistics. Missing data are listed as "?".
The description of the data file columns is provided below. For traits that
were transformed for analysis (see Table 2 of paper), means and SD
of transformed values are reported here since standard deviations cannot be
properly back-transformed.

(3) ESPD - early summer predawn water potential (MPa)

(4) ESMD - early summer midday water potential (MPa)
