- ... Nine species of landscape trees commonly planted in the semi-arid southwestern United States were irrigated with three different regimes to determine their growth response and aesthetic functionality. Irrigation treatments started in May 2010 and were based on applying 80% (wet), 60% (medium), and 40% (dry) of reference evapotranspiration (ETo) from May to October and half of that (40, 30, and 20% ...

- ... Amphibians and reptiles (herpetofauna) have been linked to specific microhabitat characteristics, microclimates, and water resources in riparian forests. Our objective was to relate variation in herpetofauna abundance to changes in habitat caused by a beetle used for Tamarix biocontrol (Diorhabda carinulata; Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) and riparian restoration. During 2013 and 2014, we measured veg ...
