Plant demography data of Pinus massoniana measured from 2011-2013 in a degraded subtropical forest in Southeast China, supplement to: Yang, Xianyu; Li, Shouzhong; Shen, Baocheng; Wu, Yuyan; Sun, Suitao; Liu, Rong; Zha, Ruibo; Li, Shou-Li (in prep.): Demographic strategies of a dominant tree species in response to logging in a degraded subtropical forest in Southeast China. Annals of Forest Science

Subtropical forest degradation induced by unreasonable disturbance is closely related to human activities in Southeast China, frequent small-scale logging by local people was the dominated disturbance regime in the forest over the past decades. The objective of this research is to evaluate the demographic consequences of logging for Pinus massoniana, a pioneer species, at the individual scales (survival, growth and fecundity) and the population scales (population growth rate and size distribution) in short-term period. Individual's size was combined with vital rates using various modeling approaches based on demographic data from three annual censuses (2011-2013). Integral projection model (IPM) was constructed and used to conduct comparative demographic analyses.
