Estimating global ecosystem isohydry/anisohydry using active and passive microwave satellite data

The concept of isohydry/anisohydry describes the degree to which plants regulate their water status, operating from isohydric with strict regulation to anisohydric with less regulation. Though some species level measures of isohydry/anisohydry exist at a few locations, ecosystem‐scale information is still largely unavailable. In this study, we use diurnal observations from active (Ku‐Band back...
