"Including plant acclimation to temperature change improves climate models" Do we all agree that the earth has been somewhat steadily warming since the 1920s? if so, then: "Plants are the largest drivers of carbon fluxes between land and the atmosphere, taking up and releasing carbon dioxide through the processes of photosynthesis and respiration. The rates at which these processes occur are sensitive to temperature and gradually adjust over time in response to long-term temperature shifts, a phenomenon known as acclimation." and: " For temperate forests, the model that included acclimation was not significantly more accurate than a model that did not. But for tropical forests, the model was 36 percent more accurate when acclimation was incorporated. In projections of future global carbon exchange, the researchers found including acclimation in the model predicted an increase in land carbon assimilation and storage. Carbon stored in plants at the end of the century was 6.5 percent higher than in the simulation that did not include acclimation."
