Togashi, F. Henrique; Atkin, Owen; Bloomfield, Keith; Bradford, Matt; Cao, Kunfang; Dong, Ning; Evans, Bradley; Fan, Zexin; Harrison, S. P.; Hua, Zhu; Weerasinghe, Lasantha; Liddell, M. J.; Lloyd, Jon


The conventional representation of Plant Functional Types (PFTs) in Dynamic Global Vegetation Models (DGVMs) is increasingly recognized as simplistic and lacking in predictive power. Key ecophysiological traits, including photosynthetic parameters, are typically assigned single values for each PFT while the substantial trait variation within PFTs is neglected. This includes continuous variation in response to environmental factors, and differences linked to spatial and temporal niche...[Show more]
