Linking pattern formation and biodiversity in Dryland Vegetation

Linking pattern formation and biodiversity in Dryland Vegetation

This video was recorded at 4th European Phd Complexity School. Ecological processes generally involve different levels of organization, starting with a single species individual, through a population of many individuals of a given species, and up to a diverse community consisting of large populations of many different species interacting among themselves and with their physical environment. Upscaling low-level attributes, such as species traits and biomass-resource feedbacks, to community level properties, such as vegetation patterns and species diversity, is a highly challenging goal for theorists. In this talk I will describe recent progress our group has made towards achieving this goal in the context of dryland plant communities.
