The relative importance of intraspecific and interspecific trait variation occurring along environmental gradients will depend on the length of the environmental gradient. Using vegetation occurring along a very short environmental gradient, restricting sampling to tree saplings, and measuring 15 functional traits, we found that interspecific differences were still the major source of variation.
