The AA. have appraised the relationships between soil moisture, groundwater depth, and plant species diversity in the lower reaches of the Tarim River in western China, by analyzing field data from 25 monitoring wells across 8 study sites and 25 permanent vegetation survey plots. Based on different vegetation types and acreage with different groundwater depth, the total ecological water demand (EWD) of natural vegetation in 2005 was estimated in the lower reaches of the Tarim River. Analyzing the variability of the monthly EWD will indicate the best time for dispensing artificial water
