Demographic transition matrices are among the most commonly applied population models for both basic and applied ecological research. The relatively simple framework of these models and simple, easily interpretable summary statistics they produce have prompted the wide use of these models across an exceptionally broad range of taxa. Here, we provide annual transition matrices and observed stage structures/population sizes for 20 perennial plant species which have been the focal species for long-term demographic monitoring. These data were assembled as part of the ‘‘Testing Matrix Models’’ working group through the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS). The data represent 82 populations with .460 total population-years of observations. It is our hope that making these data available will help promote and improve our ability to monitor and understand plant population dynamics.
