Throughfall, stemflow and interception losses were studied in the 3 dominant tree species in forests around Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, in 1989-91. With respect to precipitation, stemflow was 3.64, 3.62 and 3.97%, and throughfall was 70.57%, 69.80% and 78.09%, respectively, for Q. [Quercus] leucotrichophora, R. [Rhododendron] arboreum and A. [Azadirachta] indica. Stemflow was maximum during the rainy season. Throughfall was maximum during the rainy season in Q. leucotrichophora and R. arboreum, and during the winter in A. indica.
