Canopy processes: implications for transpiration, interception and splash induced erosion, ultimately for forest management and water resources


Some recent experimental and theoretical developments in research related to tropical forest canopies are reviewed. Deuterium tracing studies in India, which rely on the collection of samples of transpired water from leaves in the canopy, have established the importance of ‘tree size’ as an index of whole tree transpiration and the use of leaf area, basal… (More)
