Abstract

We tested the effect of general flowering (GF), community-wide masting, and drought stress on current-year tree diameter growth and aboveground biomass increment (ABI). General flowering but not drought had a marginally significant negative effect on tree growth and ABI at the community level. Analyses of dominant species clarified this pattern.
