Savanna ecosystems have long fascinated ecologists due to the codominance of trees and grasses. This codominance is often explained by the vertical juxtaposition of rooting depths leading to niche separation for water uptake. The tree–grass spatial patterns observed are often investigated within the competition, disturbance, and resource heterogeneity framework. Ecohydrologic studies are developing models to describe patterns based on this framework and the complex interplay between climate… CONTINUE READING
