SEARCH BY CITATION

Appendix S1. Trait values (mean per species) of 26 Amazonian liana species. Sample size varies for some traits and is indicated after the trait. IVI is the importance index of species; main habitats are primary forest (P), Cecropia forest (C) and Vismia forest (V). RSS=ratio of stem slenderness, SLA=specific leaf area, WLR=width—length ratio of the leaf and RGR=relative growth rate. Species names follow the Flora de Reserva Ducke (Ribeiro et al. 1999). Sample size of length and RSS was slightly higher (indicated as +1 or +2) than that of leaf traits for the species Der flor, Dic sca and Odo spA.

Appendix S2. The relationship between canopy cover and trait values of liana regeneration in 24 plots in secondary and primary forest, Central Amazon, Brazil. We used Pearson's correlations of the mean value per plot of the indicated traits or the standard deviation (SD) of traits within a plot. Bold fonts indicate significant correlations (P<0.05). WLR=width–length ratio of a leaf, SLA=specific leaf area. RSS=ratio of stem slenderness.
