    Mitigating effects of well-timed rainfall on plant mortality

    Global warming accelerates plant water use, increasing plant susceptibility to drought death. From this, it can be hypothesised that higher CO2 concentrations slow plant water use, and should offset the warming effects on mortality. Using six years of data from a field experiment, Hovenden et al. demonstrate that the timing of rainfall has a major […] More
