Extended Data Fig. 6

a, b, Drought coupling (a; n = 163 grid cells) and drought sensitivity (b; n = 163 grid cells) from variation in remotely sensed canopy vegetation water content compared to tree species richness in the United States. Black line is the best fit of the ordinary least-squares linear regressions.
