TRY File Archive

This is an archive service of the TRY Initiative complementary to the TRY Database and makes plant trait data, supplementary data and other data products discoverable, reusable, and citable.

Content in the TRY File Archive is offered "as is." By downloading files, you agree to the terms of service of the TRY File Archive.

Data download from the TRY File Archive is unrestricted - unless a restriction is posed on the individual dataset by the data owner - and requires only a free registration needed for web security reasons.

Description: To create a global leaf respiration and associated leaf traits (GlobResp)database, we combined data from recent field campaigns (Supporting Information, Table S1) with previously published data (Table S2). Data were obtained from recent publications (Atkin et al., 2013; Slot et al., 2013; Slot et al., 2014b; Weerasinghe et al., 2014) and the TRY trait database (Kattge et al., 2011; from the following TRY data 'Custodians': Peter Reich, Jens Kattge, Ülo Niinemets, Lourens Poorter and Ian Wright, noting that these Custodians have in some cases contributed data on behalf of others, most of whom are authors on the GlobResp paper). The TRY component of GlobResp includes published studies (Mooney et al., 1983; Oberbauer & Strain, 1985; Oberbauer & Strain, 1986; Chazdon & Kaufmann, 1993; Kamaluddin & Grace, 1993; Kloeppel et al., 1993; García-Núñez et al., 1995; Kloeppel & Abrams, 1995; Zotz & Winter, 1996; Grueters, 1998; Miyazawa et al., 1998; Reich et al., 1998a; Bolstad et al., 1999; Craine et al., 1999; Mitchell et al., 1999; Niinemets, 1999; Wright et al., 2001; Meir et al., 2002; Wright & Westoby, 2002; Veneklaas & Poot, 2003; Wright et al., 2004; Tjoelker et al., 2005; Machado & Reich, 2006; Poorter & Bongers, 2006; Wright et al., 2006; Meir et al., 2007; Swaine, 2007; Sendall & Reich, 2013). The database identifies individuals who were primarily responsible for collection of data (often in collaboration with other contributors), and/or who were responsible for deposition of earlier data in TRY.

File name: 15 traits of 34 hebaceous species in Sherbrooke.xlsx
Description: An experimental system consisting of 24 mesocosms along gradients of stress and disturbance were maintained outside at the University of Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada since 2009. Seeds of 30 herbaceous species were mixed and evenly broadcast over the soil surface of each mesocosm at begining. After broadcasting, we allowed natural colonization. In 2015, We grew 5 individuals for each of the 34 most abundant species that have ever appeared in the mesocosms during the years of plant succession. After one growing season, we measured15 functional traits on each grown individual. The mean trait values of 5 individuals for each species were given here. More details of the data and experiiments were given in our paper entitled "Community divergence and convergence along experimental gradients of stress and disturbance.”
