Title Mean trait values and the CSR ecological strategies
Description This file contains the mean trait values for leaf morphology, litterfall productivity, stem morphology, stem anatomy and the CSR ecological strategies of 33 Restinga species at Parnamirim, Northeastern Brazil. Leaf and stem samplings were collected from 80 25-m² plots distributed along 16 transects of 100 m-long (five plots per transect). Whenever possible, we collected the organs from the same individuals. Traits and abbreviations: Leaf dry mass (Ldmass), leaf area (Larea), specific leaf area (SLA), leaf moisture (Lmois), stem moisture (Smois), bark (Bark), stem density (Sdens), vessel diameter (Vdiam), vessel density (Vdens), vulnerability index (Vindex), stem length (Slength), stem diameter (Sdiam), litter production (Litter), variability in litter production (Vlitter), leaf-shedding behavior (Lshed) [E=evergreen, SD= semi-deciduous, D=deciduous], and the CSR plant strategy.

Title Mean trait values of leaf anatomy and biochemistry
Description This file contains the mean trait values of leaf anatomy and biochemistry from 21 Restinga species. Five fully expanded sun leaves with little to no damage were collected from 5 mature individuals per species. Leaves were collected from individuals occurring across 80 25-m² plots distributed along 16 transects of 100 m-long (five plots per transect) in Northeastern Brazil. Leaves were collected within a two-month interval to reduce temporal variation in leaf biochemistry. Traits and abbreviations: Mesophyll thickness (Meso), cuticle thickness (Cuticle), palisade layer per spongy parenchyma layer (P/S), mesophyll layer per total leaf thickness (M/T), starch content (Starch), sucrose content (Sucrose), and total soluble protein (TSP).
