These data were compiled based on field observations and available literature. Field observations of plant cover were made in September and October of 2013 and 2014, while trait measurements were made in September and October of 2014 and 2015. Field data was collected on sandbars along the Colorado River through Grand Canyon between river miles 0 and 226. Field measurements of specific leaf area, stem specific gravity, and total cover. Plant height was taken from the Flora of North America, the Jepson Desert Manual, or A Utah Flora. Seed mass values were available from the Kew Seed Information Database (http://data.kew.org/sid/). Photosynthetic pathway was compiled from published literature. The trait values were...

These data were compiled or measured (depending on the trait) for 110 plant species which were documented in vegetation monitoring surveys in years 2012-2014 along the Colorado River through Grand Canyon National Park. New trait data was collected forspecific leaf area, stem specific gravity, δ13C, δ15N, percent carbon and nitrogen, and carbon/nitrogen ratio. Seed mass and plant height data were collected from the literature and the KEW Royal Botanic Garden Seed Information Database (http://data.kew.org/sid/).
