Fig. S1. Soil moistures at the Wave Hill site from 1 October 2006 to 3 October 2007. The broken line represents the threshold moisture for photosynthetic activity in the cyanobacteria communities, as determined from laboratory experiments (see text). Soil moistures exceeded this threshold for 263 h on 75 days.
