Control of the soil water balance by sagebrush and three perennial grasses in a cold-desert environment



Control of the soil water balance by sagebrush and three perennial grasses in a cold-desert environment



Arid Soil Research and Rehabilitation 1(4): 229-244



This study compared the capacity of monocultural stands of crested wheatgrass, giant wildrye, streambank wheatgrass, and Wyoming big sagebrush to deplete water from a clay-loam soil. Soil water balance of a natural sagebrush steppe was used as a reference point. Transplanted crested wheatgrass plants extracted 243 mm of water from the soil during the first growing season, using most of the plant-available water.
