27 / 07 / 2017, Eureka Alert
Despite being an exemplar for a diverse and remarkable ecosystem, savannas are still shrouded in mystery when it comes to the environmental factors which determine their vegetation appearance, richness and composition. Therefore, a Brazilian research team investigated the influence of the soil characteristics and drainage in the northern Brazilian Amazonia. Their study is published in the open access Biodiversity Data Journal complete with an openly available and ready for re-use dataset.
