Researcher Rafael Poyatos will take part in the 2021 AmeriFlux meeting, as a keynote speaker in the first session focused on water. He will provide some examples of how SAPFLUXNET, the first harmonized global database of sap flow measurements, designed to investigate the spatiotemporal dynamics of whole-tree transpiration, and encompassing 202 datasets and 175 species. This tool is being used to address key questions about plant drought responses and forest transpiration quantification.

Prof. Poyato's keynote talk is 'Transpiration of trees and forests using the SAPFLUXNET database: from species-level water use strategies to the quantification of ecosystem transpiration'.
