We show how growth records from botanical gardens can be used to explore within-community dispersion in demographic parameters. Field patterns of such demographic paremeters are driven mainly by environmental filtering as demography differs across communities. In homogeneous communities, demographic parameters are closer than trait values to a random distribution, indicating that species coexistence is not limited by differences in demography.
