Title Germination, survival and traits of tropical ornamentals in the field
Downloaded 33 times
Description These data show the germination, survival, and traits from 21 species of introduced tropical ornamental plants in Hawai'i. Plant species were drawn from three taxonomic families and classed as invasive, casual or non-invasive. Seeds were planted at two sites (wet or seasonally dry) in 10 blocks per site in plots with or without neighbours. Seedlings were monitored for one year to track germination and survival. After one year, leaf traits were measured on any remaining plants and plants were harvested to measure biomass. Canopy cover and richness and biomass of the plant community in plots with neighbours are also included.

Title Germination of tropical ornamentals in germination chambers
Downloaded 27 times
Description These data show the results of controlled germination trials of 21 species of introduced tropical ornamental plants in Hawai'i. Plant species were drawn from three taxonomic families and classed as invasive, casual or non-invasive. Germination trials were conducted in two germination chambers in petri dishes of damp sand, with two dishes (specified by location on upper or lower rack) per species per chamber. Germination trials were conducted simultaneously with experimental plantings at two field sites and germination chamber settings mimicked light and temperature regimes of the two sites.

Title Plant community composition in field plots with neighbours
Downloaded 25 times
Description These data show the plant community composition of plots at two sites (wet or seasonally dry) in 10 blocks per site in plots with neighbours. All plots were cleared of vegetation and planted with seeds of 21 species of introduced tropical ornamental plants in Hawai'i. Subsequently, the plant community was allowed to regenerate in plots with neighbours. In these plots, plant community was measured by visually estimating the percent cover of all species within two 1 m x 1 m quadrats (excluding experimentally planted species). Data were collected at the end of the experiment when experimentally planted species were harvested. Sites and blocks are the same as those recorded in Field_Seedling_Data.csv (Data 1).
