Extended Data Figure 2 : Log–log model fits of mass growth rates for 381 tree species, by continent.

From: Rate of tree carbon accumulation increases continuously with tree size

Extended Data Figure 2

Trees with growth rates ≤ 0 were dropped from the analysis, reducing the number of species meeting our threshold sample size for analysis. a, Africa (33 species); b, Asia (123 species); c, Australasia (22 species); d, Central and South America (73 species); e, Europe (41 species); and f, North America (89 species). Trunk diameters are approximate values for reference, based on the average diameters of trees of a given mass.
