The development and use of a mehod of estimating transpirational water use by riparian plant communities is described. The method involves the development and use of mathematical models to predict transpiration rates on a leaf area basis from environmental data. These models were used in conjuction with leaf area estimates for a study stand to evaluate transpirational water use. The results indicate that differences exist among species. Species which are found in less disturbed stands tend to be much more conservative in their transpirational water use. (Author)
