Abstract : Experiments indicate that during winter the highest yield of transpiratory water will be obtained from branches from the south-facing direction, covered with a thin plastic bag. There are no significant differences between wadi habitats. Retamn raetam is a suitable species, because the combination of deep and shallow roots reduces dependency on local rainfall. (Author)
