Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/272530
Description: Global vegetation models are used to estimate water and carbon fluxes in current and future climates. To accurately estimate these fluxes, it is crucial to incorporate tree processes, such as transpir... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/217159
Description: Background/Question/Methods: In 2008 McDowell et al. proposed a conceptual model of drought mortality suggesting carbon starvation and hydraulic failure as mechanisms which lead to mortality. Since th... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/161103
Description: A soil-plant-atmosphere model was used to estimate gross primary productivity (GPP) and evapotranspiration (ET) of a tropical savanna in Australia. This paper describes model modifications required to... More
