Abstract

Some plants rely on a dependable winter recharge, as opposed to others that quickly respond to the intermittent and uncertain rainfall during the growing season. Using a stochastic model for the soil moisture process and a quantitative measure of plant water stress, we find climate, soil, and vegetation characteristics leading to the dominance or possible coexistence of these two strategies of water use.
