Title: Trait covariance: the functional warp of plant diversity?

Abstract

In 300 BC Ancient Greece, Theophrastus was one of the first to organize the diversity of plant life on Earth into categories of function and use (Theophrastus, 1916). Currently, scientists are still working to simplify the vast array of plant species and forms in order to distill general features of plant function, structure, and strategy.
