Light limitation regulates the response of autumn terrestrial carbon uptake to warming

Nature Climate Change, Published online: 06 July 2020; doi:10.1038/s41558-020-0806-0 Phenological shifts due to warming extend the growing season for plants, with implications for ecosystem productivity. Carbon uptake through photosynthesis is limited by radiation, particularly in autumn, which explains contrasting regional responses of autumn carbon uptake to rising temperatures.
