New paper out!

We are happy to be part of a huge collaborative effort of compiling the world's most comprehensive and largest database of plant traits - TRY. Our workgroup together with Macroecology Workgroup contributed our Grassland Plant Trait Database, and Aveliina is represented in the epic author list (729 authors!) of the paper introducing the updated version of the database in Global Change Biology. Big applause to the initiators and hosts of the database from Future Earth, the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry , and iDiv. Database itself is accessible from here.
