Evapotranspiration from the three lowland vegetation communities (shrub, hardwood swamp, and cedar swamp) of the New Jersey pine barrens was measured by lysimeters in the shrub community, and analysis of the water table fluctuations in the tree community from meteorological data collected at the site. A simulation of the evapotranspiration-ground water system was developed to aid in the analysis of field data on water table fluctuations. The resistance to water flow through the evapotranspiration channel in the shrub community drops rapidly with leafing out in the spring, but remains above the resistance predicted by potential evaporation measurements.
