This dataset contains python scripts to analyse outputs from the Functionally Assembled Terrestrial Ecosystem Simulator (FATES) and accompanies the paper “Needham, J.F., Chambers, J., Fisher, R., Knox, R., and Koven, C. D., Forest responses to simulated elevated CO2 under alternate hypotheses of size- and age-dependent mortality, 2020, Global Change Biology”. These scripts process FATES outputs from size- and age-dependent mortality simulations which were run to test the effect of different mechanisms of mortality on forest response to elevated CO2 (eCO2). Specifically, these scripts will process single plant functional type (PFT) simulations in which mortality is either a constant background rate, size-dependent or age-dependent. In each case, a simulation with constant woody NPP is compared to a simulation in which woody NPP increases by 25% to simulate the growth response of forests to eCO2. In addition, the data package contains scripts to analyse ensemble simulations with size- and age-dependent mortality and two PFTs, that were run to test the impact of different demographic rates on coexistence and the forest response to eCO2. Finally, the dataset includes scripts for processing simulations testing the sensitivity of results to allometry and to the recruitment scheme.
