Table S7. Generalized least-squares details for the relationships among vital rates.
Table S8. Generalized least-squares details for the relationships among elasticities.
Table S9. Generalized least-squares details for the relationships among sensitivities.
Table S10. ancova results for weighted total fecundity as a function of habitat and age of first reproduction.
Figure S1. Phylogeny used in this study to compare the demography of 204 terrestrial plant species.
Figure S2. Coefficients of variation (CV) for fecundity (into the first non-seed and non-dormant stage) and for survival (excluding the seed bank).
Figure S3. Though there was not a significant interaction between life form and sensitivity of survival on CV of survival, the patterns do suggest that different life forms might have different CV of survival.
