Appendix S1 Maps showing the location of Catalonia with mean annual precipitation (l m−2 year−1), forest aboveground biomass (t ha−1), foliar biomass (t ha−1) and leaf:wood biomass ratio in Catalonian forests.
Appendix S2 Additional information on phylogenetic analyses.
Appendix S3 Statistical results of the correlations of latitude and climatic variables with C and nutrient contents in leaves and wood, allocations of C and nutrients in leaves/wood and C:N, C:P and N:P ratios within and between leaves and wood.
Appendix S4 Maps showing mean annual precipitation (l m−2 year−1) and N and P content (kg ha−1) of leaves in Catalonian forests.
Appendix S5 Statistical results of the general linear models of stoichiometric variables with latitude, climatic variables and forest types as independent variables.
Appendix S6 Relationships of absolute aboveground growth and concentrations and contents of N and P in leaves.
Appendix S7 Relationships of aboveground growth with C:NL/W and C:PL/W, and with N:P content ratio of leaves in different forest types.
Appendix S8 Statistical results of the correlations between total aboveground biomass, foliar biomass and the ratio of foliar biomass/total aboveground biomass with latitude and climatic variables.
Appendix S9 Relationships of aboveground growth relative to foliar biomass (%) with C:NL/W and C:PL/W, and of total aboveground growth and aboveground growth relative to aboveground biomass (%) with N:P content ratio of leaves in different forest types.
Appendix S10 Statistical results of the general linear models between total aboveground biomass, foliar biomass and the ratio of foliar biomass/total aboveground biomass as dependent continuous variables, with latitude and climatic variables as independent continuous variables, and forest type as a categorical independent variable.
Appendix S11 Variables and case distribution of the principal component analysis (PCA) conducted with the allocation of C, N and P to leaves/wood, with C:N, C:P and N:P content ratios within and between leaves and wood, and MAP and MAT as variables and the studied plots as cases.
Appendix S12 Statistical results of the general linear models with forest type and PC1 and PC2 scores as independent variables, and foliar and aboveground biomass, absolute aboveground growth, aboveground growth relative to aboveground biomass and aboveground growth relative to foliar biomass as dependent variables.
