Optimal function explains forest responses to global change

Dewar, Roderick; Franklin, Oskar; Makela, Annikki; McMurtrie, Ross; Valentine, Harry T


Plant responses to global changes in carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen, and water availability are critical to future atmospheric CO2 concentrations, hydrology, and hence climate. Our understanding of those responses is incomplete, however. Multiple-resource manipulation experiments and empirical observations have revealed a diversity of responses, as well as some consistent patterns. But vegetation models - currently dominated by complex numerical simulation models - have yet to achieve a...[Show more]
