Beyond spatial and temporal averages: ecological responses to extreme events may be exacerbated by local disturbances

Abstract

The ecological consequences of climate change will be driven by a combination of both gradual and abrupt changes in climatic conditions. Despite growing evidence that abrupt abiotic change of extreme events may profoundly alter ecological processes, it remains unclear how such events may combine with longer-term global and local disturbances. Here, we… (More)
