Don't forget plankton in climate change models, says study: Phytoplankton -- microscopic water-borne plants -- can rapidly evolve tolerance to elevated water temperatures

Globally, phytoplankton absorb as much carbon dioxide as tropical rainforests and so understanding the way they respond to a warming climate is crucial, say scientists.

Rainforests are forests characterized by high rainfall, with annual rainfall between 250 and 450 centimetres (98 and 177 in). There are two types of rainforest: tropical rainforest and temperate rainforest. The monsoon trough, alternatively known as the intertropical convergence zone, plays a significant role in creating the climatic conditions necessary for the Earth's tropical rainforests. #Glogster #Rainforest

To cope, or not to cope: tropical rainforest tree leaves show little response to drought

Drought will become more severe in tropical rainforests as climate change continues. This could cause widespread tree mortality in these forests unless the trees are able to acclimate and produce leaves that can tolerate dry conditions (structures known as xeromorphic leaves). However there are very few studies of tropical tree responses to drought due to the difficulty of establishing and maintaining field sites in tropical rainforests. In a recent article in Tree Physiology Binks and…
