By investigating grass communities on and around termite mounds in Kruger National Park, we show that termite activity affects grass assemblages differently across savanna sites, with stronger influences in wetter sites. Through detecting thresholds of change and scaling these up with terrestrial LiDAR data, we further determined that mounds distinctly altered grass communities over ca. 2% of the landscape.
