Description:

Scaling up ecohydrological processes: role of surface water flow in water-limited landscapes.

Summary / Notes:

In this study, the authors present a stochastic landscape modeling approach that has the power to transfer and integrate existing information on vegetation dynamics and hydrological processes from the small scale to the landscape scale. To include microscale processes like ecohydrological feedback mechanisms and spatial exchange like surface water flow, the authors derive transition probabilities from a fine-scale simulation model. They applied two versions of the landscape model, one that includes and one that disregards spatial exchange of water to the situation of a sustainably used research farm and communally used and degraded rangeland in semiarid Namibia. Keywords: Ecohydrological processes, Spatial exchange, Topography, Land use, Spatial explicit simulation model, Water-limited landscapes, Stochastic landscape modeling.
