Abstract. [...] Key Result We advocate intensified study of the costs and benefits of plant life history strategies in different environments and the increased use of parametric and structural ensembles in the development and analysis of complex vegetation models.Expand
Identification of key parameters controlling demographicallystructured vegetation dynamics in a Land Surface Model [CLM4.5(ED)]
TLDR
A comprehensive sensitivity analysis is conducted to diagnose the Community Land Model coupled to the Functionally Assembled Terrestrial Simulator, or CLM4.5(FATES), and finds the photosynthetic capacity parameter (Vc,max25) is found to be important for simulated carbon stocks and fluxes, which determine survival and growth strategies within the model.

The effect of using the plant functional type paradigm on a data-constrained global phenology model
Abstract. Leaf seasonality impacts a variety of important biological, chemical, and physical Earth system processes, which makes it essential to represent leaf phenology in ecosystem and climateExpand
Identification of key parameters controlling demographically structured vegetation dynamics in a land surface model: CLM4.5(FATES)
Abstract. Vegetation plays an important role in regulating global carbon cycles and is a key component of the Earth system models (ESMs) that aim to project Earth's future climate. In the lastExpand
Trait-based representation of hydrological functional properties of plants in weather and ecosystem models
TLDR
This work advocates the importance of the inclusion of plant hydraulic trait representation within the new paradigm through a framework of the whole-plant hydraulic strategy to improve the simulation of carbon and water fluxes but also vegetation population distributions. Expand

Representation of vegetation dynamics in the modelling of terrestrial ecosystems: comparing two contrasting approaches within European climate space
TLDR
Two models representing contrasting degrees of abstraction of the processes governing dynamics in real vegetation are compared, suggesting that an explicit individual-based approach to vegetation dynamics may be an advantage in modelling of ecosystem structure and function at the resolution required for regional- to continental-scale studies.

TLDR
The PFT concept is traced from its origin in the early 1800s to its current use in regional and global dynamic vegetation models (DVMs), with special attention given to the representation and parameterization of PFTs and to validation and benchmarking of predicted patterns of vegetation distribution in high-latitude ecosystems.
