Population and community dynamics of desert annuals

Principal Investigators:

D. Lawrence Venable

Ecology has made significant strides in scaling up spatially, with the development of metapopulation and landscape approaches and new types of data and techniques of analysis (GIS, Landsat data, spatial statistics). There has also been some progress in scaling up temporally with recent developments of paleoecology, palynology, and tree ring research. However, the relative difficulty of obtaining temporal data as compared to spatial data, has slowed the rate of advance of temporal scaling. I have collected a 19-year data set on the population... more
