Water Loss and Salvage in Saltcedar (Tamarix spp.) Stands on the Pecos River, Texas

Abstract

Water use by saltcedar, an invasive phreatophyte, is of significant concern in many riparian zones in the western United States. Diurnal groundwater fluctuations were analyzed to estimate evapotranspiration and water salvage (water available for other ecological functions) in saltcedar stands over a 6-yr period on a site along the Pecos River in Texas… (More)
