Change in carbon exchange as a function of increasing mean annual temperature (MAT) for desert grassland (DG), desert shrubland (DS), juniper savanna (JS), pinon-juniper woodland (PJ), ponderosa pine forest (PP) and mixed conifer forest (SC).
The map shows the distribution of these ecosystems across New Mexico.
