Seasonal Patterns of Water Uptake in Populus tremuloides and Picea glauca on a Boreal Reclamation Site is Species Specific and Modulated by Capping Soil Depth and Slope Position
Plant and Soil
The two species distinct rooting and physiological characteristics produced contrasting water uptake and water use dynamics in response to rooting space, soil water availability and climate, inviting a more detailed exploration of sap flux and its interactions with climatic and edaphic variables.
