Moran et al. 2014 recently published a study integrating long-term observations of grassland dynamics with time series satellite observations to characterize relationships between aboveground net primary productivity (NPP) and precipitation anomalies. They revealed differences in the importance of current- and prior-year precipitation on NPP for C4 grasses thereby enhancing capabilities to predict grassland responses to changing climate.
