Forgive me for not understanding the connection initially.
If the CSR-strategy is dependent on the traits, how can such significant trait differences still reveal the same CSR-strategy?

CSR strategy is defined by 7 traits including canopy height, dry leaf mass, SLA and LDMC which we measured and found to be significantly different between populations. 3 other traits that we didn’t measure but found information on them in literature are lateral spread, flowering start and flowering period and they were consistent for all the populations. Although significantly different between populations, measured traits still might be within the limits that assign the same strategy to a population.

Ok, that answers my question. Thanks for your patience ;-).
Do you know if this variation is genetic (i.e. related to different introduction events and/or bottlenecks)?
