Effects of climate and land management on the type and location of vegetation in wetlands (PNAS)

Periodic floods are a normal occurrence in wetlands. To find out how these floods impact niches of different plant species in wetlands, Princeton researchers studied plant species in Everglades National Park (ENP) in Florida. They found that the sizes of the clusters of each species follow a power law probability distribution and that such clusters … Continue reading Effects of climate and land management on the type and location of vegetation in wetlands (PNAS)
