Data from: A porous convection model for small-scale grass patterns

Sally Thompson & Karen E. Daniels
Spatial ecological patterns are usually ascribed to Turing‐type reaction‐diffusion or scale‐dependent feedback processes, but morphologically indistinguishable patterns can be produced by instabilities in fluid flow. We present a new hypothesis that suggests that fluid convection and chill damage to plants could form vegetation patterns with wavelengths ≈1–2 times the plant height. Previous hypotheses for small‐scale vegetation pattern formation relied on a Turing process driven by competition for water, which is thought to occur in large...
