Abstract

Measurements of sap flow made on eight trees in a stand of Maritime pine (Pinus pinaster Ait.) are presented, and compared with potential evaporation and concurrent measurements of stomatal conductance, water potential, and the total vapour flux as measured by eddy correlation instrumentation. When the probable transpiration from the understorey is taken into account, there is good agreement between the two methods.
