From: Hydraulic diversity of forests regulates ecosystem resilience during drought

Extended Data Fig. 2

a, b, Variable importance (total decrease in node impurities) results from the machine-learning algorithm, random forests, for each variable for drought sensitivity (a) and drought coupling (b) metrics. Traits include SLA, (Amax), P50 and HSM. The suffix ‘m’ indicates the community-weighted mean; the suffix ‘SD’ indicates the community-weighted standard deviation. See Supplementary Table 3 for sample sizes.
