Entry ID: IAIDIS742

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The objective of this study was to determine regional and local
controls of vegetation spatial-heterogeneity in the Patagonian
steppe. We considered two possible factors, rainfall and ovine
herbivory. We analyzed vegetation cover along gradients of herbivory
and rainfall. Data were obtained for project CRN12 (The Role of
Biodiversity and Climate in the Functioning of Ecosystems: A
Comparative Study or Grasslands, Savannas, and Forests), wich has
Dr. Osvaldo E. Sala as PI.
