Title: Pantropical tropical tree xylem hydraulic functional traits, 1991 - 2013

Abstract

Xylem hydraulic properties data, both newly extracted from publications plus tropics-specific data extracted from the "Xylem Functional Traits Database" (Choat et al., 2012; Gleason et al., 2016), which is available on TRY (www.try-db.org). Choat, B., Jansen, S., et al: Global convergence in the vulnerability of forests to drought, Nature, doi: 10.1038/nature11688, 2012. 2012. Gleason, S. M., Westoby, M., Jansen, S., Choat, B., et al.: Weak tradeoff between xylem safety and xylem-specific hydraulic efficiency across the world's woody plant species, New Phytologist, 209, 123-136, 2016. Measurements include xylem hydraulic conductivity per unit sapwood (Ks) and per unit leaf (Kl) area, water potential at 12%, 50%, and 88% loss of conductivity (P12, P50, and P88, respectively), leaf mass per area, wood density, and maximum rate of photosynthesis. Data span both natural tropical forests and plantations and rainfall gradients from deciduous dry tropical forests to everwet tropical forests, and come from countries all across the pantropics.
