Soil moisture is the key factor in the formation and evolution of vegetation pattern.The spatial heterogeneity of soil moisture has an important significance in understanding the response mechanisms of plants in arid grasslands to environment.Meanwhile,at small scales,vegetation condition is the important driving factor to the spatial heterogeneity of soil moisture.By the methods of geo-statistics,this paper studied the spatial variability of surface soil(0-30 cm) moisture content and… Expand
