    Description

    A mathematical model is described that relates mature riparian vegetation ecophysiological response to changes in stream level. This model was developed to estimate the physiological response of riparian vegetation to reductions in streamflow. Field data from two sites on the North Fork of the Kings River were used in the model development. The physiological response of three adult white alders and one juvenile red willow were simulated as a function of the meteorological and streamflow conditions. Estimates of predawn leaf water potential, leaf temperature and transpiration rate were comparable to measured values, indicating our model can be used for predictive purposes.
