Thanks Cedric - I also like Maria's and ended up going for a combination of the two "isolated relict stands" - I'd like to give points for both but you were first. 3 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
Explanation: As the frequency of extreme drought increases, plant mortality is likely to occur in rapid pulses rather than gradual declines. This may result in isolated relict patches, which may in turn inhibit the ability of plants to recover and expand into more hospitable environments. http://www7.nau.edu/mpcer/direnet/publications/publications_...
