Bridging the flux gap: sap flow measurements reveal species-specific patterns of water-use in a tallgrass prairie

Kimberly O'Keefe, David Bell, Katherine McCulloh & Jesse Nippert
Predicting the hydrological consequences following changes in grassland vegetation type (i.e., woody encroachment) requires an understanding of water flux dynamics at high spatiotemporal resolution for predominant species within grassland communities. However, grassland fluxes are typically measured at the leaf or landscape scale, which inhibits our ability to predict how individual species contribute to changing ecosystem fluxes. We used external heat balance sap flow sensors and a hierarchical Bayesian state-space modeling approach to bridge this “flux-gap”...
