Impact of flooding on the water use of semi-arid riparian eucalypts

  title={Impact of flooding on the water use of semi-arid riparian eucalypts},
  author={Michele D. Akeroyd and D. Tyerman and Glen R. Walker and Ian D. Jolly},
The water use strategy of Eucalyptus largiflorens (F. Muell.) was investigated in response to flooding on the Chowilla Anabranch, a semi-add floodplain of the Murray River, South Australia. Water use was measured using the heat pulse technique at six sites that varied in flood duration from 0 to 78 days. Soil chloride, plant water potential and surface root mass were also measured. Suppression of tree water use did not occur during flooding regardless of flood length and site health, suggesting… CONTINUE READING
