Impact of plant trait diversity on terrestrial climate

Plant ecology studies have so far focused on the passive response of global ecosystems to climatic changes, while the impacts of plant-functional diversity on climate, including its feedback, are seldom addressed. Notably, climate models are often criticized for oversimplifying global vegetation processes. In my talk, I will present a series of sensitivity studies investigating the effect of plant trait diversity on the coupled vegetation-climate system using a new plant trait diversity model JeDi-BACH of the ICON-Earth System Model (ICON-ESM). Based on the analysis, terrestrial climate seemingly stabilizes toward a cooler and wetter state with increasing diversity.
