Two EcoFun members have participated in a study forecasting large-scale, drought-induced tree mortality in the southwestern US. The study is now published in Nature Climate Change. See figure below or here or there for more details. The study has been covered by
A new discussion paper on modelling soil OCS transport and fluxes is currently under review in Biogeosciences discussion. This paper presents a steady-state model of soil OCS deposition rates and test it against previously-published datasets. See here and post your comments!
Lisa’s paper presenting the European phenology camera network has been accepted for publication in Biogeosciences. See here. Congratulations!
Sarah’s paper from her MSc internship on intra-annual wood density modelling in maritime pine stands subjected to seasonal droughts has been accepted for publication in Tree Physiology. See here. Congratulations!
Laura Gangi’s paper on measurements and modelling of delta-18O profiles in soil water and CO2 in a mineral sand column has been accepted for publication in Vadose Zone Journal. Congratulations!
Three EcoFun members have participated in a study reviewing optimal stomatal behaviour across the globe. The study, now published in Nature Climate Change, shows how variable plants are in terms of water use efficiency. See figure below and here for more details. Estimated
Toshie’s webcam paper on the sensitivity of colour indices for discriminating leaf colours from digital photographs has been accepted for publication in Methods in Ecology and Evolution. Congratulations!
Lydia’s Bayesian parameter optimisation paper on carbon isotope discrimination is now available online in Plant, Cell and Environment. See here. Congratulations!
Congratulations to Lydia for her paper on branch-scale carbon isotope discrimination that has now been accepted for publication in the Journal of Experimental Botany. This is a really good way to finish this year.
