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 recovery from extreme drought is immediate and complete, which conflicts with the understanding of basic plant physiology. We examined the(More)
Key Points: • Models largely agree on the sign of the carbon flux response to climate extremes • Models are uncertain in the carbon flux response to heat waves in boreal forests • Droughts and heat waves strongly compound each other in their impact on C fluxes Citation: Zscheischler, J., et al.
