Atmospheric CO2 forces abrupt vegetation shifts locally, but not globally

Atmospheric CO2 forces abrupt vegetation shifts locally, but not globally A model of the effects of climate change on African vegetation from 1850 to 2100 predicts increases in woody plant cover, but considerable heterogeneity in the timing of these shifts dampens the shock that these changes in land-surface properties may represent to the Earth system. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Nature Springer Journals

Abstract

A model of the effects of climate change on African vegetation from 1850 to 2100 predicts increases in woody plant cover, but considerable heterogeneity in the timing of these shifts dampens the shock that these changes in land-surface properties may represent to the Earth system.
