Code from: Multitrait successional forest dynamics enable diverse competitive coexistence
Datasets usually provide raw data for analysis. This raw data often comes in spreadsheet form, but can be any collection of data, on which analysis can be performed.
This repository contains all the code used to produce figures in the paper:

The code based was also used to generate results of
Falster, D.S., Brännström, Å., Dieckmann, U. & Westoby, M. (2011) Influence of four major plant traits on average height, leaf-area cover, net primary productivity, and biomass density in single-species forests: a theoretical investigation.

The main simulation tool is written in C++ while figures are generated using R. All code is released under the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE (a requirement of using the GNU Scientific Library).
Please note, this code is supplied so that readers can reproduce the results of the published analysis, if that is desired. But it is not intended for use by others. If you are interested in running this type of analysis, please note that no support is given for use of this code. Instead checkout the plant package for an improved implementation of trait evolution in size- and patch-structured metacommuntiies.
This repository contains two zip files:
- `multi_trait_succession-c1.1.zip` contains code to fully reproduce figures from the 2017 paper, including running simulations.
- `output.zip` contains the simulation results used to generate figures from the 2017 paper.
