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.
