Double-funneling of trees : Stemflow and root-induced preferential flow 1

  title={Double-funneling of trees : Stemflow and root-induced preferential flow 1},
  author={M J Son},
Trees partition rainfall into throughfall and stemflow, resulting in a spatial distribution of nutrient and water fluxes reaching the soil centred on the trunks of trees. Stemflow fluxes of water and nutrients are then funneled preferentially belowground along tree roots and other preferential flow paths, bypassing much of the bulk soil. This double funneling leads to increased soil chemical, biological, and hydrological heterogeneity, which has been shown to persist for decades. In this paper… CONTINUE READING
