             abstract = "Context Vegetation is projected to continue to undergo major 
                         structural changes in coming decades due to land conversion and 
                         climate change, including widespread forest die-offs. These 
                         vegetation changes are important not only for their local or 
                         regional climatic effects, but also because they can affect 
                         climate and subsequently vegetation in other regions or continents 
                         through ecoclimate teleconnections. Objectives We propose that 
                         ecoclimate teleconnections are a fundamental link among regions 
                         within and across continents, and are central to advancing 
                         largescale macrosystems ecology. Methods and results We illustrate 
                         potential ecoclimate teleconnections in a bounding simulation that 
                         assumes complete tree cover loss in western North America due to 
                         tree die-off, and which predicts subsequent drying and reduced net 
                         primary productivity in other areas of North America, the Amazon 
                         and elsewhere. Central to accurately modeling such ecoclimate 
                         teleconnections is characterizing how vegetation change alters 
                         albedo and other components of the land-surface energy balance and 
                         then scales up to impact the climate system. We introduce a 
                         framework for rapid field-based characterization of vegetation 
                         structure and energy balance to help address this challenge. 
                         Conclusions Ecoclimate teleconnections are likely a fundamental 
                         aspect of macrosystems ecology needed to account for alterations 
                         to large-scale atmosphericecological couplings in response to 
                         vegetation change, including deforestation, afforestation and
