Seasonal Dynamics of greenness of Ziziphus lotus patches

Title: Seasonal Dynamics of greenness of Ziziphus lotus patches.

Description: This chart highlights the contrast between the seasonal dynamics of the normalized difference vegetation index (NDVI) of Ziziphus lotus patches and the nearby non-phreatophytic vegetation. The NDVI was obtained from Copernicus Sentinel‐2A images from June 2015 to June 2017 for cloud‐free pure 10 m × 10 m pixels of Ziziphus patches (42 pixels) and nearby vegetation (42 pixels).

Precipitation and temperature data were obtained from the Almería airport meteorological station, which is close to the study area, for the same period. The NDVI of the non-phreatophytic vegetation was coupled to precipitation, whereas the Ziziphus patches maintained higher NDVI during the summer drought.
