Abstract
Water-use of indigenous bamboo forest was compared with that of pine and cypress plantations, in an area where both evaporation and strongly seasonal rainfall have average annual totals of about 45 inches. Water-use was determined by a combination of continuous soil-moisture tension records with seasonal, well-replicated soil samplings, to a depth of 6 ft. from 1948 to 1950 and 10 ft. from 195 I to 1961. Root bisects and profiles of physical properties of the soil are illustrated and the soil moisture tension profiles are summarized in a diagram.
