Summary

Ollivier, Baraloto & Marcon (2007)

The purpose of the database was to structure data of plant traits to allow multivariate analyses. This framework requires normative rules of measure and organization of the data. The trait list reflects the state of the art of research and may change according to demands and new discoveries.

This approach will contribute to major contemporary ecological research question regarding plant function, such as how morphological and physiological traits are related and in which plant groups these associations have evolved.
