    Alan K Knapp
    Division of Biology, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506, USA
    Science 298:2202-5. 2002
    ..Our results show that projected increases in rainfall variability can rapidly alter key carbon cycling processes and plant community composition, independent of changes in total precipitation...

    Division of Biology, Kansas State University, Manhattan, KS 66506, USA
    Oecologia 153:261-72. 2007
    ..Thus, our results suggest that variation in precipitation history and landscape positions are greater determinants of water-use patterns than would be expected based on absolute rooting depth...

    Department of Biology and Graduate Degree Program in Ecology, Colorado State University, Fort Collins, 80523, USA
    Oecologia 149:456-64. 2006
    ..However, greater sensitivity of ANPP to early season precipitation in the South African grassland suggests that future patterns of productivity may be more responsive to seasonal changes in climate compared with the North American site...
