A list of major functional traits of 86 major forest trees in the eastern USA. Two types of traits, physiological tolerance and dispersal ability, were included
Listed in Datasets
This publication includes data for the functional traits of 86 major forest tree species in the eastern United States. The following traits are listed.
Physiological tolerance: Maximum Elevation (m), Minimum Temperature (̊C), Minimum Precipitation (mm), Maximum Precipitation (mm), Wood density (g cm-3), Fire Tolerance, Drought Tolerance, Shade Tolerance, Moisture Use.
Dispersal ability: Seed Weight (mg seed-1), Seed Spread Rate, Seed Dispersal Type, Pollination type
