The dominant forcing factors for past large-scale changes in vegetation are widely debated. Changes in the distribution of C4 plants-adapted to warm, dry conditions and low atmospheric CO2 concentrations (Collatz et al., 1998, doi:10.1007/s004420050468) -have been attributed to marked changes in environmental conditions, but the relative impacts of changes in aridity, temperature (Pagani et al., 1999, doi:10.1126/science.285.5429.876; Huang et al., 2001, doi:10.1126/science.1060143) and CO2 concentration (Cerling et al., 1993, doi:10.1038/361344a0; Kuypers et al., 1999, doi:10.1038/20659)...
