A comparison of moisture scalars and water budget methods to assess vegetation-site relationships

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



This study compares 3 approaches, a water-budget approach, and field-based and map-based moisture scalars, in their ability to predict the occurrence of a single species, American beech (Fagus grandifolia), observed in 102, 0.04 ha plots in SE Ohio. It concludes that a water-budget approach is applicable to a wide range of studies exploring vegetation-site linkages, and in terms of global change, this approach offers the additional benefit of being a dynamic model
