- New publication characterises spatial variation in shallow soil moistureThe goal of this study was to characterise spatial variation in shallow soil moisture at the plot scale by relating the mean of measurements collected in a plot to theContinue reading “New publication characterises spatial variation in shallow soil moisture”
- Which mechanisms control the change in water yield following a beetle outbreak?In this new publication, RHESSys is used to explore the mechanisms that control the change in water yield following a beetle outbreak. Results indicate that the response to beetle-caused treeContinue reading “Which mechanisms control the change in water yield following a beetle outbreak?”
- Niche-partitioning of soil water resources & higher forest productivityIn this new publication, research revealed fundamental differences in water-use patterns and niche-partitioning of soil water resources among the phylogenetic groups of trees co-occurring in widespread forests around the Mediterranean.Continue reading “Niche-partitioning of soil water resources & higher forest productivity”
- Taking Notice!The recent paper in Ecosphere, “Does hot and dry equal more wildfire? Contrasting short- and long-term climate effects on fire in the Sierra Nevada“, has been getting some attention! LeadContinue reading “Taking Notice!”
- Does hot and dry equal more wildfire?In this new Ecosphere publication, fire spread and fire effects are integrated with ecohydrology in the new RHESSys-WMFire model and used to explore contrasting short- and long-term climate effects onContinue reading “Does hot and dry equal more wildfire?”
- E-Book PublicationNaomi Tague edited a new Frontiers in Forests and Global Change E-Book, featuring articles on the research topic ‘Forest Management Alters Forest Water Use and Drought Vulnerability’, including Tague TeamContinue reading “E-Book Publication”
