Abstract

After calcium silicate amendment to an entire watershed at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest, evapotranspiration (ET) increased by ~20% for 2 y, broadly attributed to a fertilization of tree physiology (1). We suggested that the increase in ET most likely arose from enhanced transpiration due to increased stomatal conductance (gs) associated with increased photosynthesis.
