Effects of indirect facilitation through grazing on dryland ecosystems

Effects of indirect facilitation through grazing on dryland ecosystems

In this slideshow, I present some preliminary results of a vegetation dynamic model.

This model is an extension of two precedent models (Kéfi et al., 2007; Schneider & Kéfi, 2016, full citation in the slides).

I notably show that indirect facilitation through grazing can (i) maintain stable coexistence between two species in competition and that (ii) it may shift the transition type of the beneficiary species from catastrophic to linear.
