    New Phytol 170:807-18. 2006
    ..Within a narrow range of wood density, there was significant variation in vessel traits. Given their particular ecological associations, the results suggest that wood density and vessel traits describe two distinct ecological axes...

    William K Cornwell
    Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, California 94305, USA
    Ecology 87:1465-71. 2006
    ..Our results show that observed plant communities occupy less trait space than expected from random assembly, a result consistent with habitat filtering...
