gcb2490-sup-0001-FigureS1.docWord document73KFigure S1. Ancillary data of extensively (black dots) and intensively (white dots) grazed paddocks between 2003 and 2008. (a) Total dry mass (tons DM ha−1), (b) percentage green dry mass (%), (c) productivity (g DM d−1 m−2), (d) ratio of stocking rate between extensive (black solid line) and intensive (grey dashed line) paddock and (e) mean animal weight and annual growth factor for extensive (bold, italic) and intensive paddock. Data are means ± SE.
gcb2490-sup-0002-FigureS2.docWord document100KFigure S2. Weekly values of precipitation − evapotranspiration (P-ET) and inherent water use efficiency (IWUE*) of the extensively (black) and intensively (grey) managed paddock between 2003 and 2008. Lines are moving averages of 5 week intervals.
gcb2490-sup-0003-TableS1.docWord document76KTable S1. Summary of statistical analyses using a general linear model with fluxes [i.e. net ecosystem exchange (NEE), gross primary productivity (GPP), ecosystem respiration (Reco), heat flux (H), latent heat flux (LE)] as dependent variables, climatic factors [i.e. Tair, soil water content (SWC), global radiation (Rg), rain, Tsoil] as continuous predictors and treatment (T) as categorical predictor for daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal and annual sums of Reco, NEE, GPP, and daily, weekly, monthly, seasonal and annual means of SWC, precipitation (rain), Rg, soil temperature (Tsoil) and air temperature (Tair), for P-values < 0.05 (*), < 0.01 (**), < 0.001 (***) and not significant (ns).
gcb2490-sup-0004-TableS2.docWord document67KTable S2. Number of weeks per season with a soil water content <PWP (dry), PWP<X<FC and >FC (wet) in the 0–30 depth in the extensive and intensive treatment.
gcb2490-sup-0005-TableS3.docWord document43KTable S3. Cumulated NEE for dry and wet weeks (see Table S2) and proportion of NEEDRY-weeks (%dry) within the annual NEE of a given year (see Table 1).
