Our study poses a simple question but addressing it required us to deal with biases inherent in large functional trait data bases. We develop an approach to overcome these biases using observed trait values and taxonomic information. We estimate that between 45% and 48% of the world?s plant species are woody. The world is much woodier than biologists think.
