Smith) is a highly significant agricultural pest that poses a threat to crop production worldwide. It is polyphagous, has a strong migratory ability, and is difficult to control, which makes it a threat not only to crops but also to woody plants. However, research on its adaptability to woody plants is limited ..read more

Forests, Vol. 15, Pages 695: A Copula Approach for Predicting Tree Sap Flow Based on Vapor Pressure Deficit Forests doi: 10.3390/f15040695 Authors: Ying Ouyang Changyou Sun While using sap-flow sensor measurements is a well-established technique for quantifying leaf water transpiration in tree species, installing and maintaining a large number of sensors and data loggers in large-scale plantations to obtain accurate measurements is both costly and time-consuming. We developed a copula-based approach to predict sap flows based on readily available vapor pressure deficits (VPDs) and found that t ..read more
