Inclusion of ecologically based trait variation in plant functional types reduces the projected land carbon sink in an earth system model.

Abstract

Earth system models demonstrate large uncertainty in projected changes in terrestrial carbon budgets. The lack of inclusion of adaptive responses of vegetation communities to the environment has been suggested to hamper the ability of modeled vegetation to adequately respond to environmental change. In this study, variation in functional responses of… (More)
