They also provide unique climatic and edaphic conditions that may allow them to function as refugia. Methods We used species distribution modelling based on WorldClim climatic data, m elevation data and a 2-m-resolution LiDAR-derived digital elevation model DEM to predict current and future distributions of the Ornduffia species at local and regional scales based on field-based abundance estimates.
Prairie to pine conversion reduced soil water and drainage because of hydrophobicity and interception. Soil-applied surfactant did not increase soil water content or water drainage. Early afforested prairie had similar soil water content and drainage to natural prairie.
Early afforested prairie had greater soil water content and drainage than pine plantation.
Abstract Vegetation can directly affect soil water dynamics through rainfall interception and evapotranspiration. Vegetation type probably is one factor that causes soil hydrophobicity, and hydrophobicity can influence water infiltration and groundwater recharge.
Surfactants can be used to alleviate non-wetting conditions. The objectives of this study were to determine the effects of vegetation type on soil water content and groundwater recharge and to explore if a soil-applied surfactant can increase both conditions.
Soil water content was monitored at three depths 5, 25, and 70 cm with time domain reflectometry. Groundwater recharge was assessed by monitoring wells equipped with pressure transducers. Rain gauges and weather stations were installed to measure precipitation and air temperature. Soil core samples were collected for tests of saturated hydraulic conductivity Ks and bulk density Db.
Surfactant was applied on half of the plots after collecting several years of background data. There was significantly less soil water under the pine plantation than the prairie and mixed vegetation.
Groundwater recharge did not vary among vegetation types, probably because differences were obliterated due to high aquifer transmissivity. The pine plantation had less profile drainage; however, the surfactant did not increase profile drainage.
There were no differences in Ks and Db. The conversion from prairie to pine plantation resulted in reduced soil water content and drainage. Most of the pre-European settlement vegetation in southern Wisconsin, including the LWRV, was dominated by deciduous forest and prairie that were later converted to agriculture and pine plantations Auer, These changes in vegetation resulted in changes in soil water storage, for example, Sartz and Harris found in Wisconsin that in a yr-old pine plantation the soil water depletion was double that of a nearby grass area.

Vegetation plays an important role in the amount of water that reaches and is stored in the soil and thus the amount that recharges the groundwater Johnson and Meginnis, ; Le Maitre et al. In Australia, the conversion of woody plants to grasses significantly increased groundwater recharge; this was because of greater water interception by the woody plants and deep roots that extract large quantities of the soil water Le Maitre et al.
Also in Australia, the results from multiple studies in deep sandy soils have shown that wetting fronts move significantly more slowly in soils under pine plantations than in soils under shrubs Le Maitre et al. Another effect of vegetation on soil water is the formation of soil water repellency in some vegetation types Buczko et al.
Soil water repellency or hydrophobicity is a condition of certain soils in which water is repelled by the soil particles DeBano, ; Doerr et al.
Some of the identified causes or factors in soil water repellency are the type and amount of soil organic C, particle size distribution, fire events, dry soil conditions, and vegetation type DeBano and Krames, ; DeBano and Rice, ; DeBano, ; Buczko et al.
Soil hydrophobicity has been associated with some undesirable soil conditions, for example, reduced soil water content, infiltration, and wetting front movement DeBano, ; Cooley et al.
Soil hydrophobicity can also promote finger flow or preferential flow of water Carrillo et al. Cooley compared the effectiveness of three surfactants on the soil water content in a potato Solanum tuberosum L. He found that two of the surfactants Preference [Winfield Solutions] and IrrigAid [Aquatrols Corporation] increased the soil water content compared with the control treatment no surfactant.
As mentioned above, certain vegetation types have been associated with soil hydrophobicity, for example, chaparral, especially after burning, and turfgrass, potato, prairie, and forest, in particular coniferous forest, can exhibited intense water repellency after extended periods without rain or irrigation DeBano and Krames, ; DeBano and Rice, ; DeBano, ; Buczko et al.
Scott found that native grassland soils in South Africa were less hydrophobic than indigenous forest and pine plantations. Likewise, in Wisconsin, it has been documented that there is greater soil water repellency in areas planted with pines than in prairie soils Richardson and Hole, ; Flores-Mangual et al.CS/CS List of classes for the banking system Groups for projects that a system conforms to its specification and meets the requirements of the system customer Involves checking and review processes and system testing System testing involves executing the system with test cases that are derived from the specification of the real data.
