Territories expand and coexist, giving rise to neighboring FCs. Shrinkage of territories due to competition gives the opportunity for young colonies to establish in the available space. Matrix vegetation self-organizes in response to scale-dependent feedbacks along the differences in soil moisture induced by the FCs. Panels are same as in Supplementary Video 2.
