(Nordic Society Oikos, 2014-03)
Termite mounds contribute to the spatial heterogeneity of ecological processes in many savannas, but the underlying patterns and determinants of mound distributions remain poorly understood. Using the Carnegie Airborne ...
Variable effects of termite mounds on African savanna grass communities across a rainfall gradient
(International Association for Vegetation Science, 2014-05)
Questions: Termite mounds of the genus Macrotermes are prominent features in African savannas, forming nutrient hotspots that support greater plant diversity, which is of higher nutritional value than the surrounding ...
