Consequences of drought severity for tropical live oak (Quercus oleoides) in Mesoamerica

Serge Rambal, Jeannine Cavender-Bares, Kimberlee Sparks & Jed Sparks
In two Costa Rican and three Honduran sites that vary in rainfall and soil properties, we used natural isotopes, a soil water balance model and climate-based drought indices to study shifts in water use with ontogeny from seedlings to mature tropical live oak (Quercus oleoides) trees. Water use patterns help to explain persistence of this broadly distributed species in Mesoamerica and to evaluate likely threats of on-going climate changes. At the end of dry seasons,...
