Coupling carbon allocation with leaf and root phenology predicts tree-grass partitioning along a savanna rainfall gradient

Haverd, Vanessa; Smith, Benjamin; Raupach, Michael; Briggs, Peter R.; Nieradzik, L.; Beringer, Jason; Hutley, Lindsey; Trudinger, C. M.; Cleverly, J. R.


The relative complexity of the mechanisms underlying savanna ecosystem dynamics, in comparison to other biomes such as temperate and tropical forests, challenges the representation of such dynamics in ecosystem and Earth system models. A realistic representation of processes governing carbon allocation and phenology for the two defining elements of savanna vegetation (namely trees and grasses) may be a key to understanding variations in tree–grass partitioning in time and space across the...[Show more]
