Microclimate, water potential, transpiration, and bole dielectric constant of coniferous and deciduous tree species in the continental boreal ecotone of central Alaska


Journal Article

In situ investigations of the water stress in deciduous and coniferous tree species in the boreal zone of central Alaska were conducted and the corresponding changes of the bole dielectric constant and tree transpiration were studied. It was verified that diurnal and seasonal changes in dielectric constant occur in dominant trees of natural forests.
