3. Summary for graphical format
To analyze the ecosystem resilience during drought, lots of hydraulic traits are needed. In this paper, 12 hydraulic traits are used and these are enumerated in Figure 1.. To visualize this information, 4 methods are used in Figure 2. The two types of leaf are expressed with two different colors. And the size of points involves lots of hydraulic diversity. Still, 12 hydraulic traits are too many to express with one graph. Thus, it uses coupling method to combine the related traits.
The scale of graph should be considered by its contents. In this paper, it concludes the hydraulic diversity of forests which can cover the whole world. Thus, Figure 3. Contains global traits and global species richness
