- 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”
- Modeling effects of long term management practices on water supplies after cropland abandonmentIn this publication, RHESSys was used to analyze long‐term changes and annual and seasonal trends in streamflow & transpiration following management strategies of abandoned cropland areas in the Mediterranean basin.Continue reading “Modeling effects of long term management practices on water supplies after cropland abandonment”
