Large contribution of woody plant expansion to recent vegetative greening of the Northern Great Plains

Bryce Currey, David McWethy, Nicholas R. Fox & E.N. Jack Brookshire
Aim: Extensive portions of high-latitude grasslands worldwide have recently experienced increased vegetative productivity (i.e., greening) and have undergone a rapid transition towards woody plant dominance via the process of woody plant expansion (WPE). This raises the underlying question: To what degree are WPE and greening spatiotemporally linked? Given that these vegetative changes are predicted to continue, we seek to understand how recent changes in vegetation extent and productivity have interacted under recent climate change and...
