Funding Information:
Many thanks to paleobotanical community in Australia, Robert S. Hill, Raymond J. Carpenter, Mike S. Pole, and in particular the late David C. Christophel, for their decades‐long efforts to establish fossil plant collections across southern Australia. Gregory J. Jordan and James R. P. Worth are acknowledged for establishing modern calibration leaf assemblages in Tasmania. This work was supported by the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) through Discovery Grants (DG 311934 and 2016‐04,337) to DRG, and prior funding from the Australian Research Council to DRG (Grant Nos. A39802019 & SGS28/99) and JGC (DP130104314). DKH acknowledges support from Swedish Research Council Grant 2016‐03,912 and Australian Research Council grant DE220100279. The GFDL simulations were performed using resources from the Swedish National Infrastructure for Computing (SNIC) at the National Supercomputer Centre (NSC), partially funded by the Swedish Research Council Grant 2018‐05,973. JGC also the School of Biological Sciences at the University of Adelaide for the provision of resources to undertake the research. DJL and SS thank NERC grant NE/P01903X/1: SWEET: Super‐Warm Early Eocene Temperatures and climate: understanding the response of the Earth to high CO2 through integrated modeling and data.
