Dr. Maj-Lena Linderson, ICOS Sweden and  the Department of Physical Geography and Ecosystem Science, is co-author of a paper in Nature Climate Change: "Optimal stomatal behavior around the world".

Plants trade water for carbon. Every litre of water they extract from the soil allows them to take up a few more grams of carbon from the atmosphere in order to grow. A new global study published 2 March in Nature Climate Change shows that plants use their water wisely. They are adapted to the environment they live in and have developed strategies for their water usage. This work helps understanding how plants interact with climate and environment, as well as their ability to cope with climate change. The study is based on a large number of observations from different ecosystems now gathered in a freely available database for more research applications.
