Elena Kazakou, Cyrille Violle, Catherine Roumet, Marie-Laure Navas, Denis Vile, Jens Kattge and Eric Garnier Are trait-based species rankings consistent across data sets and spatial scales? Journal of Vegetation Science 25
Fig. The three data sets used in the present study. We tested if the magnitude of intraspecific variability of co-occurring species was lower than interspecific variability for a given trait by combining different approaches commonly used in functional ecology - i.e., experimental data, field observations and extraction of data from a global database. We found that interspecific variability was greater than intraspecific variability and species ranking was conserved across different datasets and spatial scales.
