Data from: Does water shortage generate water stress? An ecohydrological approach across Mediterranean plant communities

Karim Barkaoui, Marie-Laure Navas, Catherine Roumet, Pablo Cruz & Florence Volaire
The interactions between hydrological and ecological processes are key issues to improve our predictions of ecosystem responses to increasing droughts. However, predicting the dynamics and the impacts of vegetation water stress remains challenging because of complex ecohydrological feedbacks. The ecohydrological optimality approach proposes that functional adjustments within plant communities may buffer the increase in vegetation water stress despite local water shortage. This study aimed to test whether vegetation water stress may be invariant across contrasting...
