European phenological response to climate change matches the warming pattern
Global climate change impacts can already be tracked in many physical and biological systems; in particular, terrestrial ecosystems provide a consistent picture of observed changes. One of the
The reflectance at the 950–970 nm region as an indicator of plant water status
The R970/R900 index and the dNIRminimum closely tracked the changes in relative water content (RWC), leaf water potential, stomatal conductance and the foliage-air temperat...
TRY – a global database of plant traits
The improved availability of plant trait data in the unified global database is expected to support a paradigm shift from species to trait-based ecology, offer new opportunities for synthetic plant trait research and enable a more realistic and empirically grounded representation of terrestrial vegetation in Earth system models.
Responses of terrestrial ecosystems to temperature and precipitation change: a meta‐analysis of experimental manipulation
Global mean temperature is predicted to increase by 2–7 °C and precipitation to change across the globe by the end of this century. To quantify climate effects on ecosystem processes, a number of
Estimation of plant water concentration by the reflectance Water Index WI (R900/R970)
Abstract Water Index WI (R900/R970) was used for the estimation of plant water concentration (PWC) by ground-based, reflectance measurements. Reflectance and PWC were measured for adult plants
Global patterns of foliar nitrogen isotopes and their relationships with climate, mycorrhizal fungi, foliar nutrient concentrations, and nitrogen availability.
It is suggested that warm, dry ecosystems have the highest N availability, while plants with high N concentrations, on average, occupy sites with higher N availability than plants with low N concentrations.
Running to stand still: adaptation and the response of plants to rapid climate change.
It is argued that in fragmented landscapes, rapid climate change has the potential to overwhelm the capacity for adaptation in many plant populations and dramatically alter their genetic composition, resulting in a range-wide increase in extinction risk.
Assessment of photosynthetic radiation‐use efficiency with spectral reflectance
Reflectance changes at 531 nm, associated with the zeaxanthin-antheraxanthin-violaxanthin interconversion and the related thylakoid energization, are widespread among plant species. We evaluated an
