Thanks for posting that link, Morgan. It seems as I observe plant life in the low, hot desert, that what this article describes is something that SHOULD happen and now they are finding ways of proving it IS happening. So exciting. I look forward to more information on this type of work. Dryland environments are so fascinating to me. I'm lucky to live in Phoenix.
