ISLSCP II C4 Vegetation Percentage

C.J. STILL, J.A. BERRY, G.J. COLLATZ & R.S. DEFRIES
The photosynthetic composition (C3 or C4) of vegetation on the land surface is essential for accurate simulations of biosphere-atmosphere exchanges of carbon, water, and energy. C3 and C4 plants have different responses to light, temperature, CO2, and nitrogen; they also differ in physiological functions like stomatal conductance and isotope fractionation. A fine-scale distribution of these plant types is essential for earth science modeling. The C4 percentage is determined from datasets that describe the continuous distribution...
