RE: BRYONET: Bryonet: bryophytes and the regulation of water flow

BRYONET

Jenny,

I'm not sure how much of this would apply to your area, but T. G. Pypker
has a series of papers on this for forests of the Pacific Northwest of
North America:

Pypker, T. G., B. J. Bond, T. E. Link, D. Marks and M. H. Unsworth. 2005.
The importance of canopy structure in controlling the interception loss:
examples from a young and old-growth Douglas-fir forests. Agricultural and
Forest Meteorology 130:113-129.

Pypker, T. G., M. H. Unsworth and B. J. Bond. 2006a. The role of
epiphytes in rainfall interception by forests in the Pacific Northwest.
I. Laboratory measurements of water storage. Canadian Journal of Forest
Research 36:808-818.

Pypker, T.G., M. H. Unsworth and B. J. Bond. 2006b. The role of
epiphytes in rainfall interception by forests in the Pacific Northwest.
II. Field measurements at the branch and canopy scale. Canadian Journal
of Forest Research 36:819-832.
