Extended Data Fig. 9: Ecosystem sensitivity to drought saturates with species richness (the percentage of maximum) across forests globally.

From: Hydraulic diversity of forests regulates ecosystem resilience during drought

Extended Data Fig. 9

a, Drought coupling is expressed as the explained variation (R2) of midday aboveground plant water content in forest ecosystems regressed against drought variables using ordinary least-squares linear regression. b, Drought sensitivity is expressed as the regression coefficient of midday aboveground plant water content regressed against a metric of soil water stress using ordinary least-squares linear regression. n = 6,698 grid cells. The black line shows the best fit generalized additive model and dashed lines are the 99% confidence interval.
