Abstract. Woody plant abundance is widely recognized to have increased in savannas and
grasslands worldwide. The lack of information on the rates, dynamics, and extent of increases
in shrub abundance is a major source of uncertainty in assessing how this vegetation change
has influenced biogeochemical cycles. Projecting future consequences of woody cover change
