community," Journal of Hydrology, vol.
The lack of statistically significant differences in leaf carbon isotope ratios, average leaf mass per leaf area, flower counts per unit of canopy volume, mature seed counts, and tree population densities could be interpreted in two ways: either this desert phreatophyte
is consistently able to obtain sufficient water from deep below the soil surface; or water availability might be temporarily similar upstream and downstream from berms during periods when most photosynthesis, leaf, and flower production occurs.
primarily made of ponderosa pines, did not have a big phreatophyte
Rural communities use woodland with phreatophyte
vegetation and groundwater resources for their primary economic activity, livestock production.

Seed germination and seedling establishment of phreatophyte
In relation to the latter desert area, both share halophyte and phreatophyte
plants, functional types, saline soils dominance, and concentrated-dispersal model of vegetation, among others characteristics.
The development and perpetuation of the permanent tamarisk type in the phreatophyte
zone of the Southwest.
However, alfalfa, a deep-rooted plant, under some conditions may be considered a phreatophyte
Furthermore, she uses too much terminology for a popular book: Archaea, aufeis, hyporheic, phreatophyte
, strangmoor, ombrotrophic, anisotrophic, etc.
Prosopis, for example, is unlikely to act as a true phreatophyte
at the dunes site, since the water table is so deep (Hennessy et al.
