Abstract

The supplemental files in this deposition contribute additional information useful for understanding the analyses in the associated manuscript.  Two files contain the annual (CARBONO Project measurement-year) data for productivity and for environmental conditions that were analyzed in the paper.  The annual productivity metrics were derived from the CARBONO Project litterfall and tree-growth data that were provided and documented in prior Dryad data depositions.  A third file in this deposition provides the daily data underlying the analyzed meteorological factors. The fourth file lists the standardized set of 66 test models that were used to test each of the five productivity metrics for environmental responses.  The fifth file is an auxiliary table documenting tree mortality by year. The included README file documents the information in these files.

Methods

The methods used to produce the productivity and soil-moisture and tree mortality and growth data were detailed in the respective prior CARBONO Project data depositions.  The daily climatic data were based on data generated by the Organization for Tropical Studies’ meteorological station at the La Selva Biological Station.  D.A. Clark screened and where necessary gap-filled the climatic records, using cross-record regressions (e.g., manual vs. automated temperature or rainfall data).  The calculations of the daily and yearly climatic metrics are detailed in the accompanying README file. 

Usage Notes

The metrics in this supplemental information are explained and documented in the accompanying README file.
