AbstractSpecies of Larrea so thoroughly dominated the warm deserts of North and South America that if we were truly to discuss Larrea communities in this chapter, we would find doing so a lengthy and difficult task. Such a task would also be beyond the basic objectives of this volume. Our purpose in this chapter is to review recent IBP research. Vegetation on IBP study sites is emphasized. The IBP data are supplemented with data from other, earlier studies only in a limited number of instances.
