This data is Private.

Dataset Abstract

Preliminary data from the common garden experiment in Gutianshan. Approximately 10,000 cuttings from 10 common species were collected from CSPs and planted in a common garden experiment within Gutianshan. Collection and planting took place in August 2012. First measurements were taken in spring 2013. I present here dgh measures and leaf developmental stage of all surviving cuttings of spring 2013.

Dataset Design

Collection of 10 species in all but one CSPs of Gutianshan. In each CSP we aimed to collect 10 cuttings from at least 5 individuals per species (given the species was present in the CSP). All cuttings were planted in a common garden.
