23.3 Query Database

23.3.1 get.trait.data()

Queries the database for both the trait data and prior distributions associated with the PFTs specified in the settings file. The list of variables that are queried is determined by what variables have priors associated with them in the definition of the pft. Likewise, the list of species that are associated with a PFT determines what subset of data is extracted out of all data matching a given variable name.
