Comment on: 'Plantations, River Flows and River Salinity' (R.A. Vertessy, L. Zhang and W.R. Dawes, Australian Forestry 66, 55-61, 2003). Australian Forestry read online review & book description:

The paper 'Plantations, river flows and river salinity' (R.A. Vertessy, L. Zhang and W.R. Dawes, Australian Forestry 66, 55-61, 2003) , prepared by members of staff of the CRC for Catchment Hydrology, contains information that can help to clarify certain aspects of water use by trees. However, the views reported and the assumptions made cannot support an application of the research beyond the limited criteria tested. While there is no doubt that, like any other dryland agricultural crop, trees use water, the volume of water they use needs to be considered in context and as part of a wide range of economic, social and environmental variables influencing plantation forestry investment and management decisions. It is unfortunate that some members of the scientific community are extrapolating the results presented in Vertessy et al. (2003) as average outcomes for all plantation forestry. In this article, the National Association of Forest Industries (NAFI) points to the limitations of the research described by Vertessy et al., and the need for an improved and refined assessment of the use of water by trees, together with a better appreciation of the implications of integrating plantation forestry into the farming landscape. Comments are provided on the various sections of the paper.
