IAI-Data-CRN_012_Yahdjian_drought: Drought effects on ecosystem functioning in a semiarid grass-shrub steppe South of Argentina
Entry ID: IAIDIS744

Abstract: We studied drought effects on ecosystem functioning in a semiarid
grass-shrub steppe South of Argentina. We designed a 2-year rainfall
manipulation experiment where we decreased water input with rainout
