Abstract Climate change presents significant challenges for plants and plant selection. Temperatures are increasing, and rainfall is changing faster than plant species can adapt. This means that many species that we plant today may no longer cope with the future climate. This may be exacerbated in urban environments where impervious surfaces and the urban heat […]

Selecting tree species with high transpiration and drought avoidance to optimise runoff reduction in passive irrigation systems
Citation Thom, J.K., Livesley, S.J., Fletcher, T.D., Farrell, C., Arndt, S.K., Konarska, J. and Szota, C., 2022. Selecting tree species with high transpiration and drought avoidance to optimise runoff reduction in passive irrigation systems. Science of The Total Environment, 812, p.151466. Abstract Rainfall in cities can generate large volumes of stormwater runoff which degrades receiving waterways. Irrigating
Analysing the climate envelope of plant species has been suggested as a tool to predict the vulnerability of tree species in future urban climates…
