Variability in fire-induced change to vegetation physiognomy and biomass in semi-arid savanna

Fire plays an intrinsic role in shaping the biophysical attributes of savanna ecosystems. Savanna fires limit vegetation biomass below their climatically determined potential, but the magnitude of this effect and how it varies across heterogeneous …

Spatial patterns in the effects of fire on savanna vegetation three-dimensional structure

Understanding the causes and consequences of animal movements is of fundamental biological interest because any alteration in movement can have direct and indirect effects on ecosystem structure and function. It is also crucial for assisting spatial …
