Invasive Pinaceae traits 2018

Data sets resulting from a search of available public data in the TRY online database (Kattge et al. 2011) for 3 functional traits (specific leaf area, leaf nitrogen concentration, and wood density) of 34 species in 7 genera of Pinaceae that have escaped from cultivation in at least two global regions (Essl et al. 2010). These data were used to quantify intraspecific trait variation in Sapsford et al. (in press).
