In subtropical forests in southeast China, 10 physical- and chemical-based traits vary differently between leaf and wood tissues across six ecological scales. The large variability for wood traits at the plot scale suggests a habitat filtering process, but for leaf traits within plots reflects niche differentiation process. These decoupled trait axes may increase the dimensionality of niche space and facilitate species coexistence.
