Conifer encroachment increases foliar moisture content in a northwestern California oak woodland

Year of Publication
Publication Type
Foliar moisture content influences crown fire ignition and behaviour. Some spatial variation in foliar moisture is attributable to differences in stand conditions but evidence describing this role is lacking or contradicting. Aims. To examine the role of stand conditions on tree physiology and foliar moisture content in Oregon white oak (Quercus garryana) and Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii).
