Abstract Water use efficiency, defined as the amount of dry, above-ground wood and bark produced per unit of water transpired, was determined for sprouts of three broad-leaved species grown in a short-rotation, coppice system at about 33.5°N in Georgia, USA. During the 95 day study period, Liquidambar and Platanus produced an average of 132.2 g and 105.1 g woody biomass m −2 land area, respectively, and transpired about 3.6 kg water g −1 biomass produced. Robinia , however, grew much less (14.0… CONTINUE READING
