The Inverse Texture Effect: A Neglected Idea in Dryland Ecohydrology

Global Drylands Center

The inverse texture effect is often described as a fundamental characteristic of dryland ecosystems. Walter and Noy-Meir described it in the 1970s and since then little has been done beyond treating it as though it were indeed a fundamental characteristic. How much do we really know about it? This seminar will answer that question and describe analyses that provide important new information about how the inverse texture effect operates in the big sagebrush drylands of western North America.

This seminar co-hosted by the Hugh Hanson Ecology Seminar Series, School of Life Sciences and the Global Drylands Center
