Samples taken in seventeen different microhabitats in the Sonoran Desert, NW of Tucson, Arizona (U.S.A.), revealed large variation in spatial (78-fold) and temporal (28-fold) patterns of seed distribution. Seed densities were lowest in normally dry washes and open areas between shrubs, were intermediate between shrubs, and were highest in artificial and naturally occurring depressions in the soil surface. There were microsites with high seed densities within microhabitats of low overall seed… CONTINUE READING
