Water balance and tree water use dynamics in remnant urban reserves

Highlights Enough water to the sites despite urban surroundings and different water regimes. Groundwater contributes 30–40% of the total transpiration during the driest periods. Transpiration is 3–16% of total daily transpiration during night-time heat stress. Abstract During the expansion of urban areas, small natural reserves have often been left intact within the built environment as central […]

Assessing vegetation response to irrigation strategies and soil properties in an urban reserve in southeast Australia

Increasing urban green spaces and canopy cover requires careful planning of irrigation strategies, especially in arid and semiarid areas. This study investigates how vegetation cover and irrigation affect the water balance and vegetation productivity of a small urban reserve in the Melbourne metropolitan area, Australia…
