Understanding How Plants Use Water in California's Redwood Forests

8/8/2017; 6 minutes

In California's Coast Ranges plants not only use water directly from rainstorms, but also harvest the thick fog that blankets these mountains. UC researchers are investigating how different plants in the forest, from the tall redwoods to the ferns of the forest floor use different water sources, so we can understand how climate change will alter the forest as the patterns of rainstorms and fog events changes in the future.
