Title: Ecohydrologic separation of water between trees and streams in a Mediterranean climate

Author: Brooks, J. Renee; Barnard, Holly R.; Coulombe, Rob; McDonnell, Jeffrey J.;

Date: 2010

Source: Nature Geoscience. 3: 100-104

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Here, we directly explore links between hydrology and transpiration at the small watershed scale in a seasonally dry climate. Our central questions were: to what extent do trees and streams return the same water pool to the hydrosphere and how does this vary spatially within a watershed? These questions are fundamental to testing watershed hydrology models and coupled ecology-biogeochemical-hydrology models, which assume complete mixing of water moving through the soil towards the stream.

Keywords: ecophysiology, oxygen isotope, plant-soil interactions, solution transport, hydrology
