Kovenock, M.; et al. (2018): Leaf Trait Acclimation Amplifies Simulated Climate Warming in Response to Elevated Carbon Dioxide

Kovenock, M.; Swann, A. (2018): Leaf Trait Acclimation Amplifies Simulated Climate Warming in Response to Elevated Carbon Dioxide. In: Global Biogeochem. Cycles 165 (2), S. 351. DOI: 10.1029/2018GB005883.

"Here we show that one leaf trait acclimation in response to elevated carbon dioxide—a one‐third increase in leaf mass per area—significantly impacts climate and carbon cycling in Earth system model experiments. Global net primary productivity decreases (−5.8 PgC/year, 95% confidence interval [CI95%] −5.5 to −6.0), representing a decreased carbon dioxide sink of similar magnitude to current annual fossil fuel emissions (8 PgC/year)."
