Groundwater is a major driving force for plant community distribution in arid areas worldwide. Although it is well known that groundwater has a significant impact on soil and vegetation, there is little information on how groundwater depth affects soil and vegetation in an arid inland basin desert riparian ecosystem. Therefore, quantitative analysis of the relationships among groundwater depth Cited by: 8. The local climate that influences vegetation varies from place to place depending on such features as latitude, proximity to the ocean, average cloud cover, and rain-shadow effects. In general, though, as one ascends tropical mountains in the rain forest zone, tall forest gives way to forest that is lower in stature, simpler in structure, and.

  The convergence of structure, physiology and phenology is thought to be driven by adaptations to similar climatic, topographic and edaphic conditions arising in different regions of the earth (e.g. Walter, , ; Whittaker, , , ). A more recent restatement of the concept of functional convergence explains how resource Cited by: CLIMEX Software.

Remote sensing of land-surface phenology is an important method for studying the patterns of plant and animal growth cycles. Phenological events are sensitive to climate variation; therefore phenology data provide important baseline information documenting trends in ecology and detecting the impacts of climate change on multiple scales.

EROS maintains a set of nine annual phenological metrics for the conterminous United States, all curated from satellite data. Taken together, the metrics represent a powerful tool for documenting life cycle trends and the impacts of climate change on ecosystems.
