Dryland vegetation response to wet episode, not inherent shift in sensitivity to rainfall, behind Australia's role in 2011 global carbon sink anomaly

Abstract
There is compelling new evidence that semi-arid ecosystems are playing a pivotal role in the inter-annual variability and greening trend of the global carbon cycle (Ahlström et al., 2015). The situation is exemplified by the vast inland region of Australia, the driest inhabited continent. Using a global model, Poulter et al. (2014) inferred that Australian ecosystems contributed 57% of a record global carbon uptake anomaly in 2011, and have entered a regime of enhanced sensitivity to rainfall since the mid-1990s.
