Date of collection 
The wet mass of the foliar standing crop of M. pyrifera (kg m2, excluding sporophylls and holdfast). These data are obtained by first calculating the wet mass of each plant, using methods detailed in Section I.B Measuring standing crop, and then dividing the total wet mass of all plants in the plot by the area of the plot. Plants without at least one frond longer than 1m are excluded. 
The dry mass of the foliar standing crop of M. pyrifera (kg m2, excluding sporophylls and holdfast). These data are obtained by first calculating the dry mass of each plant, using methods detailed in Section I.B Measuring standing crop, and then dividing the total dry mass of all plants in the plot by the area of the plot. Plants without at least one frond longer than 1m are excluded. 
The carbon mass of the foliar standing crop of M. pyrifera (kg m2, excluding sporophylls and holdfast). These data are obtained by first calculating the carbon mass of each plant, using methods detailed in Section I.B Measuring standing crop, and then dividing the total carbon mass of all plants in the plot by the area of the plot. Plants without at least one frond longer than 1m are excluded. 
The nitrogen mass of the foliar standing crop of M. pyrifera (kg m2, excluding sporophylls and holdfast). These data are obtained by first calculating the nitrogen mass of each plant, using methods detailed in Section I.B Measuring standing crop, and then dividing the total nitrogen mass of all plants in the plot by the area of the plot. Plants without at least one frond longer than 1m are excluded. 
The density of M. pyrifera fronds in the plot (number m2). 
The density of M. pyrifera plants in the plot (number m2). Only plants with at least one frond greater than 1m are counted.mv 
The loss rate of M. pyrifera plants during the sampling interval (fraction of plants lost day1). These data are based on losses of 10 to15 tagged plants, as described in Section I.B Measuring loss rate. 
The average loss rate of fronds during the sampling interval (fraction of fronds lost day1). These data are the mean loss rate of tagged fronds from 10 to15 tagged plants, as described in Section I.B Measuring loss rate. The mean is based on frond loss from plants that survive the period; losses of whole plants are accounted for in the plant loss rate. 
The standard error in our estimate of foliar standing crop in units of wet mass (kg m2). This estimate is produced using Monte Carlo methods, as described in Section I.B Quantifying Uncertainty. The error in wet mass includes two types of error. Observer error consists of errors made in the number of plants sampled and in the measurement of their size. Regression errors include variability in the allometric relationships used to calculate the size of the three plant sections, as well as uncertainty in the length:wetmass conversion ratio

The standard error in our estimate of foliar standing crop in units of carbon mass (kg m2). This estimate is produced using Monte Carlo methods, as described in Section I.B Quantifying Uncertainty. The error in carbon mass includes two types of error. Observer error consists of errors made in the number of plants sampled and in the measurement of their size. Regression errors include variability in the allometric relationships used to calculate the size of the three plant sections, as well as uncertainty in the length:wetmass, wetmass:drymass and drymass:carbonmass conversion ratios. 
The standard error in our estimate of foliar standing crop in units of nitrogen mass (kg m2). This estimate is produced using Monte Carlo methods, as described in Section I.B Quantifying Uncertainty. The error in nitrogen mass includes two types of error. Observer error consists of errors made in the number of plants sampled and in the measurement of their size. Regression errors include variability in the allometric relationships used to calculate the size of the three plant sections, as well as uncertainty in the length:wetmass, wetmass:drymass and drymass:nitrogenmass conversion ratios. 
The standard error in our estimate of M. pyrifera frond density (number m2). Error in frond density reflects variation in the total number of plants sampled in a plot. This estimate is produced by comparing repeated sampling by different observers of a single plot. 
The standard error in our estimate of M. pyrifera plant density (number m2). Error in plant density reflects variation in the total number of plants sampled in a plot. This estimate is produced by comparing repeated sampling by different observers of a single plot. 
The standard error in our estimate of M. pyrifera plant loss (day1). This error is sampling error associated with calculating a mean loss rate for the entire plot based on 10 to15 tagged plants. 
The standard error in the calculated rate of frond loss (day1). This error is sampling error associated with calculating a mean loss rate for the entire plot based on 10 to15 tagged plants.
