Vegetation change may have a greater impact on the amount of stream flow in the Sierra than the direct effects of climate warming

New publication in Plos One from Tague Team Lab member Ryan Bart with Naomi Tague and Max Moritz. The RHESSys model was used to examine the effects of tree-to-shrub type conversion, in combination with climate change, on streamflow in two lower montane forest watersheds in the Sierra Nevada.

Read the paper: Bart RR, Tague CL, Moritz MA (2016) Effect of Tree-to-Shrub Type Conversion in Lower Montane Forests of the Sierra Nevada (USA) on Streamflow. PLoS ONE 11(8): e0161805. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0161805
