trait data has been submitted to TRY
This database aims to gather datasets that cover a variety of biomes, geographic areas, and traits. Already, the database comprises about 2,400,000 trait entries for more than 64,000 plant species and about 1000 different traits. My own research group is busy collating the data we have assembled over the years - an impressive dataset of >500 species from the temperate and alpine grassy ecosystems of southern Australia. In the spirit of co-operation, we hope to submit our data to TRY so that others can use our hard-won data.
