In order to understand whether the associations between TV and mortality are different by climate (for example, whether warm/cold locations have higher effect estimates for TV-mortality associations than cold/warm locations), we divided 372 communities into four groups (cold, moderate cold, moderate hot, and hot areas) by the quantiles ([less than or equal to] 25th, 25th-50th, 50th-75th, and > 75th) of their annual mean temperatures during the study period (each community had one value for annual mean temperature) (see Figure S1).
The resulting warming is larger than without the feedbacks but still rather independent of global-mean temperature; there is a near orthogonality between the contours of mean temperature and climate sensitivity.
The reduction of seeds number/head and 1000-seed weight at the second sowing date may be attributed to the trends of mean temperature alterations from head appearance (heading) stage to maturity time.
