Pervasive drought legacies in forest ecosystems and their implications for carbon cycle models
The impacts of climate extremes on terrestrial ecosystems are poorly understood but important for predicting carbon cycle feedbacks to climate change. Coupled climate?carbon cycle models typically assume that vegetation ...
Climatically controlled reproduction drives interannual growth variability in a temperate tree species
Climatically controlled allocation to reproduction is a key mechanism by which climate influences tree growth and may explain lagged correlations between climate and growth. We used continent-wide datasets of tree-ring ...
Timing of precipitation in an arid environment: Effects on population performance of a large herbivore
Climate models predict that shifts in temperature and precipitation patterns are likely to occur across the globe. Changing climate will likely have strong effects on arid environments as a result of increased temperatures, ...
