As already outlined, plant transpiration is assumed to be imposed transpiration.

Moreover, the effect of vertical gradients in leaf temperature and vapour pressure deficit will be neglected. Finally, precipitation interception will be neglected for the time being. Both mature trees and seedlings absorb water from a bulk soil compartment of fixed depth with a simple bucket model approach.
