Abstract
Wetlands are ecosystems that play a key role in maintaining biodiversity and associated economies (e.g. agriculture and livestock) because they are reservoirs of water and carbon. Globally, these environments have been largely deteriorated, so their sustainable use takes on special importance. This study examined the effect on water recharge of the replacement of natural grassland by pine afforestation on hillsides adjacent to two Patagonian wetlands with [ver mas...]

dc.description.abstractWetlands are ecosystems that play a key role in maintaining biodiversity and associated economies (e.g. agriculture and livestock) because they are reservoirs of water and carbon. Globally, these environments have been largely deteriorated, so their sustainable use takes on special importance. This study examined the effect on water recharge of the replacement of natural grassland by pine afforestation on hillsides adjacent to two Patagonian wetlands with contrasting rainfall. Results showed that independently of the rainfall at the site considered, canopies with high coverage values (90%) intercept 40% of the precipitation. This percentage is significantly reduced when canopy coverage is near 70%. Considering forested and grassland hillsides, groundwater drainage showed different patterns, consisting of only a few millimetres in the seasons recorded. Surface runoff was not a significant source of recharge for these systems in spring and summer, showing similar values in forested and grassland hillsides. Differences found in the recharge water variables between afforestation and grassland conditions cannot be directly associated with the vegetation in areas surrounding the wetlands. These systems showed high complexity, requiring site‐specific analysis to determine what the impact of afforestation will be on their hydrologyeng
