Desert rodent communities are model systems for understanding the effects of environmental severity and pulsed resources on community assembly, structure, and dynamics; however, the unique characteristics of arid ecosystems require long-term studies to reveal patterns and underlying mechanisms. The 3 papers in this Special Feature demonstrate the novel insights that can be gained from long-term (>10 years) ecological research on desert rodent communities.
