Abstract

In many arid and semi-arid environments around the world, limited rainfall and runoff-runon processes have lead to vegetation patchiness on many types of landscapes. With simulations studies, the AA. address 2 related questions. Firstly, compared to a landscape with no patchiness, how strongly does the presence of patches influence resource capture, and hence productivity? Secondly, in terms of resources and productivity, is it important whether patches are small and scattered over the landscape (stippled), or occur in short bands (stripes) or as long bands (strands)?
