Pervasive shifts in forest dynamics in a changing world. Science, 368, eaaz9463. Shifts toward shorter and younger forests. What will be the future state of forests and how will it be different from the current one? Uncertainties In the early stage of the climate change, trees assimilated more carbon than before the change.

Atmosphere‐Soil Interactions Govern Ecosystem Flux Sensitivity to Environmental Conditions in Semiarid Woody Ecosystems over Varying Timescales. Journal of Geophysical Research: Biogeosciences, 125, e2019JG005554. https://doi.org/10.1029/2019JG005554 Summary Samuels-Crow et al., in this paper, quantified environmental antecedent (past) memory of water (ET) and carbon (NEE) fluxes over two semi-arid sites where two different conifer species dominate each.
