DescriptionClimate is critically linked to vegetation dynamics at many different spatial and temporal scales across the desert Southwest. Small-scale, short duration monsoon season thunderstorms can bring much needed precipitation to small patches of vegetation or can initiate widespread flooding. Long-term variations in climate related to ocean circulation patterns can create multi-decade wet or dry periods that can promote large-scale, episodes of recruitment of certain species (wet periods) or large-scale mortality (dry periods).
