The distribution of vegetation in relation to peak unit stream power (A) and lichen distribution in relation to time since last flood (B). “Full” BRT models predict the probability of vegetation occurrence to increase sharply when peak unit stream power falls below 5 W m-2 (green and yellow areas). Lichen occurrence probability is predicted by the “full” BRT model to increase after four years since last flood (green and yellow areas).
