Structural and compositional heterogeneity influences the thermal environment across multiple scales

David Londe, Dwayne Elmore, Craig Davis, Sam Fuhlendorf, Barney Luttbeg & Torre Hovick
Heterogeneity is becoming increasingly recognized as a critical driver of biodiversity and ecosystem processes. While the influence of heterogeneity on species diversity and abundance is well documented, how heterogeneity influences the distribution and arrangement of important resources across a landscape is still unclear. In particular, the mechanistic relationship between temperature and heterogeneity remains to be explored. Heterogeneity in vegetation structure and composition is often cited as important drivers of the near ground thermal environment. Due...
