Tree species and size drive water consumption of beech/spruce forests - a simulation study highlighting growth under water limitation

Abstract

By using a growth model, a simulation study was done to detect differing transpiration sums of an evergreen and a deciduous tree species within a mixed stand. The dependence of summer drought and transpiration on tree size and species, and the relationship of water use efficiency and tree growth was analyzed. The process-based growth model BALANCE was used… (More)
