Extended Data Figure 2

a, b, Estimated mean 16-cereal aggregated production deficit for extreme heat (a) and drought (b) in 200 sub-samples with size of (1, 2, …, n) (points). Dotted grey line shows the final estimated mean production deficit (9.1% for extreme heat, 10.1% for drought). Most of the initial variability at low sample sizes dissipates into the mean at well below the actual sample size (n = 39 for extreme heat, n = 247 for drought).
