Differential transpiration by three boreal tree species in response to increased evaporative demand after variable retention harvesting



Differential transpiration by three boreal tree species in response to increased evaporative demand after variable retention harvesting



Agricultural and Forest Meteorology 138(1-4): 104-119



We compared the change in microclimate and tree water relations between a boreal mixedwood, variable retention (VR), partially harvested stand and an adjacent, unharvested control stand. A nearly three-fold increase in potential evapotranspiration (ETP) at the crown level in the VR site was approximately proportional to a 2.8-fold increase in wind speed (u), along with subsidiary increases in net radiation (Q) and vapour pressure deficit (D) after harvesting.
