  1. Each category h1h2 includes heights ≥h1 and <h2, except the 50-60 category includes the 9 species noted as exactly 60 m tall. The last category is the species for which no monograph provided a maximum height, and the percent of species is based only on the 2461 with height recorded. The 11 species with height < 3 m are included because they appear in our tree census plots
