Drought events are major disruptors of ecosystem carbon and water cycles, with important feedbacks to the climate system. Our understanding of tree response to drought has largely been shaped by work in persistently water-limited forests of the Western U.S., where droughts are long and often lethal. This talk will present new insights into how trees respond to drought in the relatively wetter Eastern US, where tree mortality is more rare, but drought-driven declines in forest carbon uptake, water use, and growth may nonetheless be profound.
