    Description

    Climatic variability is reflected in differential establishment, persistence, and spread of plant species. Although studies have investigated these relationships for some species and functional groups, few have attempted to characterize the specific sequences of climatic conditions at various temporal scales (subseasonal, seasonal, and interannual) associated with proliferation of particular species. Research has primarily focused on the climate conditions concurrent with or occurring just prior to a vegetation response. However, the cumulative effect of antecedent conditions taking place for several consecutive seasons may have a greater influence on plant growth.
