Abstract
The belief that the presence of large areas of forest may be the direct cause of local rainfall has been widely held since the close of the last century, when scientists, both in Germany and France, reported rainfall readings in forested areas to be higher than those measured in the immediately surrounding arable countryside. With the advance of our knowledge of meteorology, and of the techniques of rainfall measurement, it has become apparent that such effects need very largescale experimental studies with adequate statistical planning.
