Modelling competitive ability of neotropical savanna grasses: Simulation of shading and drought impacts on biomass production
(Ecological Informatis 13: 57-69, 2013)
In this paper, we develop a technique to model the spatial distribution of shoots along vertical and horizontal dimensions of a plant community. We use it to simulate the growth of a tropical savanna near the city of ...
Coupling soil water and shoot dynamics in three grass species: A spatial stochastic model on water competition in Neotropical savanna
(Ecological Modelling 220: 2734 - 2743, 2009-10-24)
Savannas are ecosystems known for their high environmental and economic value. They cover at least 20% of the global land surface and, in some cases, can act as a boundary between tropical rainforest and deserts.Water is ...
