In the other five ELTPs, the total importance of mesophytes (W = 56.
The consistent dominance by mesophytes among Southwest, South, Ridgetop, North and Low Slope ELTPs resulted in a PERSIM range of 42-64%.
Examples might be the xerophytes and mesophytes
of Warming or Odum's visualization of biotic diversity into producers, consumers, and decomposers.
Conversely, the hydrologic balance in a humid region, with 2,000mm (80in) of annual precipitation, may be as follows: (a) 40 percent of precipitation going to the potential evapotranspiration of mesophytes
and hydrophytes; (b) 10 percent to evaporation, mostly from water bodies; and (c) 50 percent to runoff.
There was a tendency for salt- or water stress-tolerant taxa to have lower values, and for hydrophytes and mesophytes
to have higher values along DCA axis 1 (Fig.
Plants that are adapted to both tropical and temperate regions and depend on precipitation for growth.
The search for explanations of how mesophytes
can survive in the desert brought me to the field of biogenic weathering and climatic changes in the Near East.
