Extended Data Figure 3 : Aboveground mass growth rates for 41 tree species in the absence of competition.

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

Extended Data Figure 3

The ‘+’ or ‘−’ symbol preceding each species code indicates, respectively, species with mass growth rates that increased continuously with tree size or species with mass growth rates that declined in the largest trees. Sources of the diameter growth equations used to calculate mass growth were: a, ref. 45; b, ref. 46; c, ref. 48; d, ref. 47; and e, ref. 49.
