Species- and community-level patterns in fine root traits along a 120 000-year soil chronosequence in temperate rain forest

Measurement of species- and community-level root and leaf trait responses for 50 temperate rainforest species from 28 families of ferns, woody and herbaceous angiosperms and conifers, along a soil chronosequence in New Zealand that exhibits a strong gradient in soil nutrient availability.
