Climatic displacement exacerbates the negative impact of drought on plant performance and associated arthropod abundance

Jordan Croy, Jordan Croy, Jessica Pratt, Daniel Sheng & Kailen Mooney
Climate change is acting on species and modifying communities and ecosystems through changes not only with respect to mean abiotic conditions, but also through increases in the frequency and severity of extreme events. Changes in mean aridity associated with climate change can generate ecotype by environment mismatch (i.e., climatic displacement). At the same time, variability around these shifting means is predicted to increase, resulting in more extreme droughts. We characterized the effects of two axes...
